Description

    Cincinnati, OH- The Bank of Cincinnati $3 Oct. 12, 1815; $3 Remainder G18; G48 Wolka 0375-23; -24
    These two $3s effectively "bookend" this bank's existence. The 1815 note, which depicts Cincinnatus, the Roman soldier/farmer, who is the namesake of Cincinnati, was issued before the bank even received a state charter the following year. It grades a pleasant evenly circulated Very Good-Fine. The $3 remainder was issued around the time of the bank's final collapse in 1841-42 and grades Very Fine on bright white paper. It has a distinctive central vignette of Cincinnati's riverfront district circa 1840. The early $3 is surprisingly rare with four examples known; two in the holdings of the Cincinnati Historical Society and two in private hands.
