    Kirtland Safety Society Reissued $5 Note

    Kirtland, OH- Kirtland Safety Society Bank $5 March 8, 1837 G8 Rust 70 Wolka 1424-10
    This is a most interesting note that was signed by J(oseph) Smith and S(idney) Rigdon when it was originally issued in 1837. The note made the trek west to Salt Lake City and it was pressed into service again in January 1849. The signers of the reissued note are Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, and N(ewell) K. Whitney. The reissued serial number is "172" which is placed above the printed plate letter. Also, the initials "TB" below the original serial number are those of Thomas Bullock's and they were used for additional authentication when the note was reissued. This is a bright note for the grade with the left edge just inside the frame line. Fine+.
