Description

    Cincinnati, OH- The Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton Rail Road $20; $50 Wolka 0417-01; -02
    These two large format advertising notes were used to promote the railroad during the decades after the Civil War. It was incorporated in 1846 and eventually grew, through the usual complex series of mergers, leases, and other maneuvers, to become part of CSX Corporation today. The large size of these notes allows the backs to show a marvelously detailed map of where the railroad could deliver passengers and goods. The $20 grades Very Good on toned paper with a number of margin chips and divots. The $50 grades Very Fine. Two marvelous nineteenth century railroad pieces. At present, these are the only examples known of these two denominations, with neither listed in Vlack.
