    Unique "42nd" Branch of the State Bank of Ohio $5

    Cincinnati, OH- The State Bank of Ohio, "Hamilton County Branch" Counterfeit $5 May 12, 1848 UNL Wolka UNL
    Some counterfeiters were better than others. The one responsible for this note had not done his homework. There were two branches of the State Bank of Ohio in Cincinnati; the Franklin Branch and the Mechanics & Traders Branch. There was never a "Hamilton County Branch" although this name would have been a good guess. Additionally, the back design has been botched, with the central panel showing "STATE OF OHIO" rather than "STATE BANK OF OHIO." Wolka always considered this unique note to be from the "42nd Branch" of the State Bank of Ohio. It grades a problem free Very Good-Fine with no damage or repairs noted.
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection
