    Scrip Salesman's Quotation on Marked-up Note

    Bolivar, OH- Unknown Issuer 5¢ Jan. 1, 1863 Remainder Wolka 0190-02
    What makes this note interesting is that it is a Cedarville, NJ remainder which was clearly used by the salesman for the printer to solicit business from an Ohio merchant in Bolivar. All of the New Jersey information has been crossed out and the Ohio information written in. Of even greater interest to Obsolete paper money collectors is the back which contains a price quotation for various quantities of notes and a recommended split between four different denominations. A marvelous insight into the economics of using scrip during the Civil War. The note grades About Uncirculated with the usual specimen punch cancels and an ink spot on the back. In fifty years of collecting, Wolka never saw another similar example from any state.
