A lovely $5 proof note from the Bank of Greensborough, Georgia. Although there is a small piece missing at the bottom due to the holes punched where the signatures go, the vignettes on this note are beautiful. What I find intriguing about them is their depiction of everyday scenes. The lower left not only shows a couple of guys shearing sheep but also shows a small child observing them. The center vignette shows some guys chopping wood and the vignette on the right side shows people harvesting corn. Vignettes like these not only make this a beautiful note but it renders it appealing to collectors of Americana as well as currency collectors. This can result in a greater profit potential for investment purposes.
