    Excessively Rare Early $50 Raised Note

    Columbus, OH- The Franklin Bank of Columbus Raised $50 Oct. 1, 1831 (?) Wolka 0863-35
    Condition is an irrelevancy regarding this note. It is a unique example of a raised $50 note on Columbus' first bank. The $1 note used to make this is also unknown in circulated condition save for one example lodged in the holdings of the Cincinnati Historical Society. The note obviously circulated based on both its condition and the number of endorsements on the back. Even the material used to reinforce a body tear is vintage, appearing to be from a contemporary document. For the record, the note grades Fair-About Good, but knowledgeable collectors will not care.
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection
