    Massillon, OH- Merchants Bank of Massillon $1 May 24, 1861 G4 Wolka 1611-02 PCGS Very Fine 35.
    The Merchants Bank of Massillon was organized under the Free Banking Law of 1851. It opened on July 1, 1851 and was located on the east side of Erie Street between Main and Charles Streets, across the street from the Union Branch of the State Bank of Ohio. It became the First National Bank of Massillon (Charter 216) on January 8, 1864 and left $9,000 in outstanding state bank circulation in 1868 when the bond securing the bank's state circulation was released to the former shareholders. The full width vignette that adorns this fully issued and very scarce $1 is amazing and creates a stunning visual effect.
