$1 Proof

New York Traders Bank, North Granville

1850s (Rare)

This bank was a short-lived firm, only in business from 1851-53. This $1 note is attractively laid out with text flowing up and over the central vignette of three American craftsmen representing Industry, with a harbor and town in the distance. Vignettes of Prosperity and a warship complete the major design elements. An exceedingly rare and superb proof that originated upon a unique four-subject proof sheet.
