    Issued Scrip on the State Bank of Iowa - Dubuque Branch

    Dubuque, IA- Smith & Cannon at Dubuque Branch of the State Bank of Iowa 10¢ Dec. 1, 1862
    The design is Oakes 60-13, but this note clearly shows that these were actually issued by the bank's customers and were made payable at the bank. The signature appears to be "Smith & Cannon." The Cannon part of the partnership may be George Cannon who was a grocer according to the 1860 Census. Smith is obviously not an easy name to track down and so we leave that to the new owner. This example grades problem-free Fine and is only the second note we have been privileged to sell from this issuer. In 2008, the issuer was identified as "Smith & Cameron," but the signature seems to be a better fit for "Cannon." In any case, this note is simply quite rare and should rival the price achieved in 2008 for the 5¢ denomination.
