Description

    Cincinnati, OH- The Cincinnati & Whitewater Canal Co. $1 (2); $2 (3); $3 (2); $5 Wolka 0411-02 (2); -04; -05 (2); -07 (2); -08 Very Good and Better
    The canal was chartered in 1837 and commenced construction in 1839-40. It extended some 25 miles from West Harrison, Indiana to downtown Cincinnati and included one of the engineering feats of the time, an 1800 foot tunnel. The canal prospered from its completion in 1843 into the 1850s but became obsolete as railroads became more numerous and cheaper to maintain. Except for a few isolated stretches, the canal was abandoned in 1863-65. This lot comprises a complete denomination set including examples of both date varieties of the $2 and a duplicate $1, $2, and $3 for a total of eight notes.
