DescriptionOshkosh, WI- Oshkosh City Bank $1 18__ as G2 Krause G2 Proof PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ.
This was a short-lived Free Bank that was in business for a short period of time between 1854 and 1855. Fortunately the bonds sold by the state were sufficient to pay note holders at par. The $1 design features a farmer looking back home after felling a tree with a gold dollar coin conveniently leaning against the stump. This vignette is accompanied by the state comptroller die and a vignette of a frontiersman and his dog as well as a portrait of Webster. The note is printed on India paper mounted on cardstock without any POCs but with four diagonal slit cancellations in the signature lines that are virtually invisible without close inspection. One of perhaps two known; decidedly rare and likely to stay that way.
From the Charles R. Pease, Jr. Collection, Part II
