Description

    Newark, OH- Columbus & Lake Erie Rail Road Bond $50 Oct. 1, 1850
    A quick perusal of our records indicates we have only handled one other example of this bond and that was over six years ago. This well margined piece was the product of Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson, Cincinnati and the central vignette includes the train engine Bellville. The railroad was organized in 1845. Seven years later, it reached Newark. The next year, 1853, the name was changed to the Sandusky, Mansfield and Newark Rail Road. In 1869, the B&O Rail Road purchased the route. The $50 bond is the only denomination listed in the Wolka reference and it was assigned a rarity rating of R-5, indicating 11 to 25 known. Very Fine with several interest paid rubber-stamped notations along with handwritten notations on the face. A great piece of history.
