    Kirtland, OH- The Kirtland Safety Society Anti-Banking Co. $3 Jan. 4, 1837 G6 Wolka 1424-08 Rust 6
    January 1837 marked an inauspicious beginning to this institution's history. Everything was in order to begin printing and issuing notes, save for the state's failure to approve the bank's charter. The organizers elected to issue notes anyway despite this legal nicety, but under the name Kirtland Safety Society Anti-Banking-Co. The "Anti-" and "-Co." were stamped onto the notes, with the officers' titles on the signature line also overstamped. The $3 is one of the scarcest of the anti-banking issues and in high demand by collectors and, when offered, almost invariably sells for a five figure price. This example, which grades Fine, has had its lower right corner replaced, and will likely not reach quite that level despite its rarity.
