Stonington, Connecticut. $5 1929 Ty. 1. Fr. 1800-1. The First NB. Charter #735. PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.This popular New London whaling community has always been seen as fascinating with paper money collectors. Beginning with the Obsolete era, nautical vignettes played a key role in production of banknotes. The First National was the only bank in town to notes. This screaming gem has palpable embossing, crackling fresh paper, and superb color. Easily the finest of the two-dozen small size enumerated in the NBN census.
