Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a tough to find bank note issued from Washington, D.C. This one was issued by the Potomac Savings Bank in the amount of $1. It has the printed date of issue of July 7th 1851 . This one is not listed in Haxby, but this is much a bank as many of the frauds that operated in the District. At the top right is Liberty directing some cherubs doing some art activities. At the left end is George Washington and at the right end, a Jenny Lind portrait. It measures 7-1/4th inches by 3 inches. The back states "Childrey The Druggist, Dealer in Old Coins, Stamps, and Relics, No. 1722 E. Main Street, Richmond, Va." Mr. Childrey was a Richmond druggist who sold old coins, stamps, and relics of the war. What a neat addition to a cool note. It comes in an acid-free holder for display and preservation.
