    1838 Architect / Builder scrip

    Dayton, OH- Thomas Morrison 6-1/4¢; 50¢ Feb. 1838 Wolka 0999-01; -04
    Thomas Morrison was an early architect and builder in Dayton and did projects as diverse as private homes, university buildings, and even bridges. We last offered these notes in our September, 2003 Signature Auction in Cincinnati where the pair attracted winning bids of $322.00. There are two known examples of the lower denomination note, with one being an illustration in the August, 1931 issue of The Numismatist, and only this example of the 50¢ design. They were rare in 2003 and the past decade has not seen them get any more common. Both notes grade Very Good-Fine, with the lower denomination having an interesting inscription on the back "Oh the Gold and Silver Currency."
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection (Total: 2 notes)
