    Columbus, OH- The State Bank of Ohio, Franklin Branch $1; Counterfeit $1 1846 G478; C478 Wolka 0893-02; -03
    Because of its success the State Bank of Ohio was the target of numerous counterfeiting efforts and, in many cases, the counterfeits far outnumber the genuine examples today. This pair of notes provides an interesting study in the subtle and not so subtle differences between the two. The genuine note (serial number 727-C) has much more lifelike portrait details and two distinct white pebbles by the farmer's left leg while the counterfeit has an almost cartoon-like appearance to the farmers face and is generally more muddled in appearance. The genuine note is unique for this branch and very rare as a genuine note even for the entire statewide network of forty-one branches. Both notes grade Very Good, with the genuine note having a small chunk missing out of the bottom margin by the dog head. Otherwise both notes are completely intact with no repairs.
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection (Total: 2 notes)

    Estimate: $300 - $400.
