Stacks has a neat obsolete from MA (MA-515-G22a) that shows a real vignette (not just a protector/counter) on the back. Is this the earliest one?

Stacks's description:
Quote:
The Warren Bank, Danvers, Massachusetts. Two Dollars. 1854. Issued Note. Fine.

Plate A. Imprint of Rawdon, Wright, Hatch, & Edson, New-York/New England Bank Note Co., Boston. Right end, large portrait of George Peabody. Left, curving title with upper left corner portrait. Lower right, seated Athena with "2." Engraved back, no text, with street scene in Danvers, church at left. Bank, title over the doorway WARREN BANK at the right. Haxby MA-515 G22a SENC. Rarity-7. Rare bank and very rare style with the town scene back, without texts or counters. This note was redeemed at par in 1881 and is so noted on the left portion of the face, not disturbing the note's overall face appeal. The back is lovely. Two small punch hole cancels and trimmed in the 'New England" tight fashion.
