    Hartford, IN - Manufacturers Bank $1 Dec. 1, 1858 G2a
    A fully red tinted example of this rather unusual lithographed, not engraved, banknote. The bank was a completely fraudulent affair whose business was abruptly brought to an end in 1859 by the Cincinnati police. The bank's assets at that time consisted of a trunk, $600 in unissued notes, two shirts, one vest, and two sections of a flute. This attractive red-and-black $1 note saw some circulation before the bank's collapse. PCGS Extremely Fine 40, easily the nicest example of the handful that we have sold.
