Description

    Delaware, OH- The Siota Exporting Co. $5 Apr. 3, 1813 G18 Wolka 1025-03
    The local townspeople made sure that this 1817-18 fraud was nipped in the bud. One day when the "proprietors" were absent, the citizens broke into the firm's office located in a room of Welch's Hotel, piled all of the concern's papers, furnishings, and other assets in the middle of the street, and burned everything to ashes. While Haxby lists the $5 as a counterfeit, your cataloger believes that these notes were simply crudely printed, with neither sufficient time nor enough perceived value to attract counterfeiters. We are presently aware of three examples that escaped the bonfire nearly 200 years ago.
