$1,000 Proof

Staten Island Bank, Port Richmond

1839-40s (Probably unique)

“Excessively Rare Staten Island Bank”
Port Richmond, NY
An excessively rare proof from a rare bank in either Proof or issued form. PMG has graded only one example, and this is it. It is without any POCs and has a regal appearance with its oversized dimensions. Appropriately, a harbor scene is the vignette. It has a ‘Durand & Compy. New York’ imprint and is an excellent example of their finest work. This may even be the plate note on page 1749 of the Haxby reference. Simply a great note.
