Great $5.00 note issued by the Hamilton Bank of Scituate, RI. Nice depiction of an eagle at top center, flanked by Roman numeral V's. Very Good condition with creases and several edge issues.
The note has distinct signatures and the bank is listed as RI-440 and the note is listed as G8. Printed by New England Bank Note Company.
A well circulated but rare note - the 1988 Haxby book values this note at $60.00.
Minor paper loss on both vertical edges does not detract from the rarity of this note!
