    Unique Scrip Payable at the State Bank of Ohio Branch

    Elyria, OH- Starr Bros. & Co. at the "Lorain Bank" 25¢ Oct. 1, 1862 Wolka 1075-04
    Printed on yellow paper with a green "25" protector, this is presently the sole surviving example of this denomination from this very rare dry goods merchant issuer that was in business from 1857 to around 1880. These notes were payable at the local branch of the State Bank of Ohio, known locally as the Lorain Bank. Very Good with a number of internal small fold separations and body slits. Extremely rare and likely to remain that way.
