    Cincinnati, OH- The Exchange Bank of Cincinnati / Otis Arnold & Co. $2 June 1, 1838 Wolka 0457-03
    The Exchange Bank of Cincinnati opened in 1834 and failed in the midst of the Cincinnati Bank Riots of 1842. The bank seemed to be primarily involved in the handling of the issues of a number of different banks, including this one from Nashville, TN. It is signed by Otis, Arnold & Co. whom the Ohio State Bank Commissioners identified as an illegal note issuer in their 1839 report. The note, which sports a red back, grades Very Good-Fine with a small divot missing out of the bottom margin and a couple of small inconsequential body holes. This is one of two examples presently known, with the other residing in the holdings of the Cincinnati Historical Society.
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection


    Estimate: $300 - $350.
