    Delaware, OH- The State Bank of Ohio, Delaware County Branch Counterfeit $1; Counterfeit $10 (2) 1849-52 C624; C652 (SENC); UNL Wolka 1027-06; -30; -32
    The Delaware County Branch was not immune to counterfeits as these three examples will attest. The $1 note is a particularly poor effort, with Gustavus Swan's portrait on the left end making him look like an axe murderer. The counterfeiter was detail oriented enough to write a manuscript "V" in front of "Prest." on the signature line. This would have been encountered on genuine notes from the late 1855. Fine-Very Fine with a couple of smudges in the signature lines. The 1849 counterfeit $10 is tolerably well done and grades Fine, with only three known examples at present. One of these is in the collection of the Cincinnati Historical Society. The 1852 counterfeit $10 is not seen nearly as often as the earlier $10s and, as usual, is most easily detected by the portrait work. This example grades Fine, with a small paper thin on the back and is unique from this branch.
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection (Total: 3 notes)
