    Dubuque, IA (Terr.)- Miners Bank of Dubuque $5 18__ Remainder Oakes 58-2 / 61-2 PCGS Choice About New 55.
    The Miners Bank of Dubuque seemed to always be on the verge of collapse, but never quite did. This note was in use during the period when Dubuque was part of the Iowa Territory (1838-1846). The territorial legislature acted to repeal the bank's charter but the action was tied up in court room maneuvers until 1848, by which time the bank had voluntarily closed its doors and settled its affairs. This note was printed by Western Bank Note Co. / Woodruff Tucker & Co. of Cincinnati and depicts two steamboats in its central vignette. Surprisingly, this marks only the second appearance of this design in one of our auctions.
