Description

    Franklin, OH- Franklin Silk Company $1; $5 (2)
    This lot contains a total of three Franklin Silk Company remainders. The company was formed in 1836 and failed approximately 1838 at least partially as a result of the Panic of 1837 and their overly optimistic business plan. The $1 is PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ and includes factory vignettes and a scene of Benjamin Franklin working on his theories of electricity. The $5 examples are PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ and PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. The square vignette at left includes Proserpina, Mercury, and Thor. These notes were printed by Rawdon Wright & Hatch New-York.
