DescriptionColumbus, OH- Citizen's Savings Bank Shell Card Very Fine
Shell cards were a popular way to advertise products and services in the late 1800s. The Citizen's Savings Bank was located at 40 North High Street in the heart of downtown Columbus. Your cataloger has not been able to ascertain the exact dates of operation but estimates that the bank was in business during the last three decades of the nineteenth century. This shell card is designed to resemble an 1870 $20 gold coin. The back has a yellow cardboard disc pressed in with the bank's capital, rate of interest paid on deposits, and location listed. The card, probably made of brass, is approximately 34mm in diameter, closely matching that of the coin it was imitating. Condition is quite good, with the coin side lustrous and without any major edge dings while the cardboard disc has just some minor abrasions and stains. An interesting addition for any Ohio collection.
Estimate: $300 - $400.
