1876 Hand Lettered Retirement Placard

A special piece. A retirement plaque handlettered with black ink on gold leaf.  It appears to be on the back of a piece of wood molding (from the National Provincial Bank of England?) I'm curious how this piece made its way to New England. Perhaps Mr. Atkinson migrated after his retirement?  Who knows.
