    Description

    Franklin, OH- The Franklin Silk Company $1, $5 18__ Remainders Wolka 1124-01, -04
    These remainders are about all that is left of an ill fated attempt to introduce the cultivation of Mulberry trees and silk worms into the wilds of northern Ohio in the late 1830s. The venture failed quickly. Thanks to the discovery of over 1,000 sheets of notes in 1925, these are quite common but nonetheless tell an interesting tale of what might have been. Uncirculated, with the $1 having slightly irregular top and bottom margins."All proceeds to fund at-risk and foster youth rehabilitation services through Turning Point Experience and other charities."
