    Port Deposit, MD- Port Deposit Loan Notes. Six Examples.
    The town's name was selected as it described the local business operations. Located on the Susquehanna River, it served as a "port of deposit" for lumber and produce until it could be shipped out. The following six notes were issued due to the shortage of small change:
    5¢ Nov. 3, 1862 Shank 102.1.2 Fine
    10¢ Nov. 3, 1862 Shank 102.1.8 Fine with a small portion missing at upper right and a tear repair near the lower right corner.
    25¢ Oct. 25, 1857 Shank 102.1.13 VG-Fine with several areas of ink around the central vignette and a line drawn through the interest clause
    25¢ Nov. 3, 1862 Shank 102.1.14 Fine with roughness and staining along the bottom margin
    50¢ Oct. 25, 1857 Shank 102.1.18 VG-Fine with a line drawn through the interest clause
    50¢ Nov. 3, 1862 Shank 102.1.19 Good-VG with several small holes.
    There will be no returns on this lot for any reason. (Total: 6 notes)
