    Cincinnati, OH- The Savings Bank of Cincinnati, Ohio State Stock Bank $3 Dec. 15, 1851 G6 Wolka 0619-03
    The Savings Bank of Cincinnati opened in 1851 and, with some difficulty, managed to stay in business until December 3, 1860 when it was declared insolvent by state authorities. The bank's securities were sold in 1861 and the remaining $2,000 in outstanding circulation was redeemed at par. This $3 is from the first series of notes issued which used a common design for every Ohio State Stock Bank. This note is one of two known from the entire state, and unique for this bank. It also seems to be one of the few notes from this first series that is not a counterfeit. PCGS grades this example Apparent Fine 12 due to some small edge tears and a tiny internal split at left.
