    Description

    Anamosa, IA- Wapsipinicon Land Co. $1 Mar. 4, 1858 Oakes 3-1
    The Wapsipinicon Land Co. was an extension of the banking and land speculation interests of its owner, William T. Shaw, who signed this note. It features a wonderful vignette "Finding the Red Ear." To relieve the tedium of husking large amounts of corn, young men and women were invited to a "frolic" where there was lots of good food and a chance for the young man who found the first red ear of corn amongst the mountain of yellow ears to kiss the young lady of his choice. This note grades Extremely Fine with just a few light folds.
