There was an uncut sheet of these in the American Banknote Company archives sale (Lot 844). It became a part of the Schingoethe collection. I purchased it from a Smythe sale and cut it. The note which follows is not from the ABNCo/Schingoethe sheet. It is a darker shade of blue. The stamp hinges on the card suggest it was part of D C Wismer's collection.
