Two exchange notes from Drexel, Sather & Church, Bankers and Dealers in Bullion and Bills of Exchange. The partners in this bank covered the county: F.M. Drexel in Philadelphia, P. Sather in New York and E.W. Church in San Francisco. They were one of the top exchanges of the California Gold Rush and major shippers of gold to New York. One of the treasure boxes in the S.S. Central America sale belonged to this company. These exchange notes are from 1856 and 1857. They are two different versions. The one with the whaling vignette is extremely rare and desirable. Good condition. California
