    (Columbus), OH- The State Bank of Ohio $50 G1720 Wolka 0895-17 Proof
    The $50 was the largest denomination that the State Bank of Ohio issued and they did not issue very many of them. There simply was no need for such a large value. Very few were issued between 1845 and 1864 and almost all of the ones that were issued were redeemed. This note was produced before 1850 for evaluation by the State Bank's Board of Control and Executive Committee in Columbus. As a result, the $50 denomination is the King of all State Bank of Ohio notes. There are three examples known to collectors; this proof and one issued example each on the Dayton and Delaware branches. The Dayton note has not been seen since 1988 and the Delaware note is tightly held for the foreseeable future so it may be decades before another example appears. PCGS grades this note Choice About New 55PPQ.
