    Canton, OH- Richardson's Drug Store 5¢; 15¢ Remainder; 20¢ Remainder
    R.A. Richardson was involved in several partnerships prior to 1862 when he apparently struck out on his own with a Drug Store. Included in this lot are the only three examples known from this issuer. They were discovered in 2006, after the release of the 2005 update to the state catalog and therefore are unlisted. The remnant of the 5¢ note was discovered first, followed quickly by 15¢ and 20¢ printer's specimens that were either sent to the customer for approval or retained in the printer's records. Each has two punch cancels in the signature line to prevent unauthorized circulation. The 5¢ note grades Fair, with the right end missing, while the two specimens, originally part of the John J. Ford, Jr. collection, grade Uncirculated.
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection (Total: 3 notes)
