Philadelphia, PA, (Third) Bank of the United States $1,000 June 1, 1840
Imprint of Draper, Toppan, Longacre & Co., Phil & N.Y. Printed in all blue. A scarce note. Classic Third Bank design with monolithic structure top center and the six portraits, three at each end, making up the panels. Left end with red dividend stamping. The obligation was never paid when the bank failed amidst the political climate of the period. A small spot at the right edge is trivial.
