    Cuyahoga Falls, OH- The State Bank of Ohio, Summit County Branch $1 Wolka 0947-07
    A very rare type, this green tint $1 issue features a portrait of Hosea Williams, President of the Delaware County Branch. The State Bank of Ohio was urged to switch to green by ABNCo and did so on the $1s. They ran into immediate problems because the green ink formulation destroyed pen nibs used to sign notes after just a short time. As a result, the State Bank of Ohio ordered a return to the red tints traditionally used. The green tint $1s are extremely rare, with thirteen known from all forty one branches. The Summit County Branch has one known example; this note. PCGS grades this note Apparent Fine 15 due to small edge splits, tears, and repairs. These do not detract from the overall eye appeal and desirability of this great rarity.
