Group 14 – Shingled Layout

A few plates with a spectacular shingled presentation of the bank title were made during a one year period spanning March 1896 to March 1897.  This group uses the same generic payment clause as group 3.  The variety has been observed on Morristown, New Jersey (1113), New York, New York (4898), and McDonald, Pennsylvania (5058).  The most readily obtainable of the three comes in the form of counterfeits on Morristown.
