    Cincinnati, OH- The State Bank of Ohio, Mechanics & Traders Branch $10 Wolka 0633-20 Proof
    An interesting note that was printed some five years after the Mechanics & Traders bank was suspended and closed by the State Bank of Ohio Board of Control in November, 1854. Your cataloger suspects that this branch was selected to be put on this proof which was used as part of the approval process for a new series of designs in 1859-60 for two reasons. First, this was a long branch title that could be used to show how similar title lines would fit into the design. Second, since the branch no longer existed, it would be more difficult for someone to try to put the note into circulation with false signatures. In any case, it is one of the prettiest notes from the state that PCGS grades Very Choice New 64PPQ. There are four examples known, all coming from a single uncut sheet that was cut after the 1990 Archives sale.
