One Dollar Detroit City Bank Note Signed.

Detroit Dec. 20, 1837. 7.25 x 3, finely engraved one dollar bank note, drawn in the Detroit City Bank. Reads "Will pay One Dollar on demand to C.C. Trowbridge or Bearer." Not cancelled. Well worn, creased, some of the handwriting is faded, tears, small pieces missing along edges, handwritten date of April 11th on the back. Note has a lovely central vignette of the city and its waterfront with two smaller vignettes of sailing vessels. The Detroit City Bank was organized in December of 1837 with offices on Jefferson Avenue. The bank started off well but soon overextended itself and finally closed in February of 1839. This bank note was dated almost eleven months after the territory of Michigan was granted statehood.
