    Smethport, PA- M'Kean County Bank Spurious $5, July 26, 1858 S5 Choice About Uncirculated;
    Smethport, PA- Mc Kean County Bank $5 185_ Remainder G6a Choice About Uncirculated.
    The spurious note has a glaring deficiency; the bank title is incorrect, with "Mc Kean" misspelled as "M'Kean." This is yet another example of Ormsby being involved with an operation that was not legitimate. The notes were undoubtedly thrown into circulation far from Smethport, targeting poor spellers who were familiar with the bank name but not with its legitimate notes like the remainder that is also in this lot. (Total: 2 notes)
