    Description

    Middletown, OH- William Jonse - "The Canal Bank" $1 Mar. 6, 1861 Wolka 1657-05
    The old adage of "Never trust a bank that resorts to font size to improve its acceptance" applies here. Looking closely at the note, it reads "The UNDERSIGNED who has an office on THE CANAL BANK ..." This deceptive use of language is in keeping with the nature of the bank which was finally listed as a "NO SALE" institution in 1841 counterfeit detectors. This note is dated some twenty years later and is either another individual trying the same ploy or fictitious information added to a remainder. In any case, the dollar denominated notes are rare. This note is our first offering of this denomination. It grades Very Good-Fine and is presently unique with this signature.
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection
