Newark, NJ. 37 1/2 cent, Oct. 14, 1837, Wait 1545, R-5. Fine to Choice Fine condition. The notes themselves were actually 1% interest bearing, and since they were emitted in the tumultuous late 1830s, notes held too long by the public were likely not redeemed. Engraved with the imprint of C. P. Harrison N. York. At top center is a whaling vignette, unique and custom made for the series, adapted from William Page's 1835 painting, Capturing of a Sperm Whale, Small, but powerful, the vignette captures the surge of the sea and the frightened faces of the oarsmen as the whale is harpooned. Flanking the whaling scene are an eagle and wharf goods. At the upper left is a galleon. The right end has a vertical trio of Spanish Colonial real coin reverses that circulated in the period. This example appears in equal or better condition than the one offered from the Eric P. Newman Collection offered by Heritage in 2018 that sold for over $1100. A very attractive and scarce denomination note.
