    Kirtland, OH- The Kirtland Safety Society Anti-Banking Co. $3 Jan. 4, 1837 Wolka 1424-08 Rust 14
    An extremely rare example of the $3 "Anti-Banking" note, a name that was adopted by this Mormon run institution to circumvent the Ohio authorities when the bank's application for a charter was denied by the Ohio legislature.

    Estimate: $12,500 - $22,500.
