This $1 obsolete remainder note printed for the West River Bank in Jamaica, Vt., sold for $82 on July 8, 2014, by Heritage Auctions.
These richly ornamented designs were not only pleasing to the eye but had a serious side as they served as security devices. In addition, the red overprinted world ONE above and to the right of the underprinting of the same word, might have given a counterfeiter some pause.
And all this for just under $100. For more information about notes like this, visit www.HA.com or call the auction firm toll-free at 800-872-6467.
