    Mismatched Back Proof from the Ravenna Portage County Branch

    Columbus, OH- State Bank of Ohio, Franklin Branch $1 UNL Wolka 0893-09 Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 63.
    The Franklin Branch was organized in 1845 and remained in business until it became the Franklin National Bank of Columbus (Ch. 599) in 1864. This attractive red-orange and black note features a vignette of five people "solving the world's problems" as well as a portrait of Hosea Williams, one of the bank's directors and President of the Delaware County Branch. Both proofs are printed on India paper mounted on cardstock with the usually encountered POCs. Although apparently intended to be a matched face and back proof "set", the back is from the Portage County Branch in Ravenna. We are presently aware of five examples of this note, one of which is uniface. The other four all have the mismatched faces and backs.
