$1 Face Proof

Post Note (Real Estate Pledged), Circleville

18 _ _

A gorgeous black and white proof of this unknown issuer with the phrase “REAL ESTATE PLEDGED” underneath the central vignette of a man holding his staff and caduceus while overlooking the river. The upper side vignettes show a man with a shovel at right and a bovine scene at left. The central vignette is flanked more closely by two profile busts of what appear to be either an ancient Greek or Roman goddess with the number “1” indicating the denomination. No ABNCo stamp seen on the back and this note is uncancelled.
