    Description

    Newtown, OH- The Newtown Library Company / Hamilton County Bank $2 July 20, 1841 Wolka UNL
    The Newtown Library, originally chartered as a library in 1810-11, had a later reincarnation as a fraudulent banking institution that used the "Hamilton County Bank" as a legitimate appearing front for notes that had no backing whatsoever. The firm collapsed in 1842 after a brief run of less than two years. Very Good, with a small body hole and lots of margin roll and fold overs, this note is one of two examples presently known of this denomination.

    From The Wendell Wolka Collection
