    Columbus, OH- The Columbus Consum Verein 1¢; 5¢; 10¢; 50¢ Wolka 0859-00.5; -01; -02; -04
    The Columbus Consum Verein was a German cooperative venture that allowed members to acquire goods from the group's store, undoubtedly at an attractive price. Based on the signers of the 1¢ note, this concern was in operation around 1860-1870. The 1¢ note is Fine-Very Fine. Unknown at the time the state catalog was published in 2004, the 1¢ note appeared in time to be included in the 2005 update of the book. There are presently two examples known. Two examples of the 5¢ denomination are presently known, with this one grading Fine-Very Fine with a tiny pin hole under the "M" in "CONSUM." The 10¢ note grades Very Fine with four examples presently known. The 50¢ denomination has an elaborate green tint with a green and white "FIFTY" protector and grades Fine-Very Fine.
