    Newark, OH- The State Bank of Ohio, Licking County Branch $1 Aug. 6, 1850 G1036 Wolka 1945-02
    The Licking County Branch was organized in 1849 and was one of the least successful branches, being put into the hands of a receiver by the State Bank of Ohio in 1852. The branch's notes were redeemed via a safety fund, and it left a scant $2,422 in outstanding circulation in May, 1865. This is a quite unusual $1 in that it is genuine and is countersigned by the branch president. Normally, the notes were simply signed by the State Bank of Ohio president (in this case, Gustavus Swan) and the branch cashier because the notes were shipped to the branches with only one signature as a precaution against theft. The note is graded Apparent Very Fine 20 due to some small edge splits. This genuine note is unique for the branch.
