    Belmont, OH- Joseph A. Grove at John A. Grove, Jr. 5¢ Mar. 1, 1863 Wolka 0158-01
    J.A. Grove is listed as a grocer in the 1860 Federal census. This scrip note, which is dated rather late in the scrip issuing period, in the spring of 1863, is apparently a printer's specimen which was either sent to Grove for approval or retained in the printer's files and records. Uncirculated but with some hinge glue remnants on the back. There are three punch cancels in the signature line, designed to thwart any unauthorized attempts to put the note into circulation with falsified signatures. It is the plate note in the state catalog and one of three examples presently known. Rare and facing up with the look of a higher grade.
