    Description

    Milwaukee, WI - $5 1929 Ty. 1 The Mechanics NB Ch. # 12816
    Notes from this institution, which failed in 1930, are by far the most difficult to find of any of Milwaukee's small size issuers. Interestingly, after the bank failed its assets were acquired by the Bay View State Bank located on the city's southeast side. That bank converted to national status and issued Bay View NB notes under the acquired charter, which was actually that of this institution. Thus two banks, each in a different location, issued notes using one charter number, a rare if not unique occurrence. This is one of just ten examples listed in the census bearing this title. Fine.
