    Dentist Third Issue Fractional Currency Look-Alike Ad Note

    Cincinnati, OH- The Central Steam Dental Company 50¢ Wolka Unlisted
    Doctors Benjamin Ludlow and Wilson Pendery issued this marvelous Fractional currency look-alike advertising note sometime around 1865 to 1870. The note indicated that the practice was open seven days a week, employed a "polite lady attendant" for ladies and children who were patients, and that both gas and electricity were used for extracting teeth without pain. An upper or lower denture was available for $10 and tooth extractions were a mere 50¢ each, less 25¢ if this note was presented. The back resembles a third issue 50¢ Fractional note. PCGS grades this great note Choice New 63PPQ.
