Description

    Hamilton, OH- The Bank of Hamilton 25¢; Counterfeit $10 1820-35 Wolka 1235-03; Unlisted
    The Bank of Hamilton opened in 1818. A loan gone wrong with the Farmer & Mechanics Bank of Cincinnati drove the bank into near collapse, resulting in a virtual suspension of operations from 1821 to 1835. It was revived in 1835 with a new infusion of capital only to close its doors for good in February 1842. The fractional note is from the bank's first period of activity and is the only known example of any fractional denomination from the bank. It grades Good and is backed by an unusual contemporary drawing of an apparent auction. The $10 also grades Good, has been restored, and is clearly a counterfeit based upon the poor work on the cameo heads.
