    Ohio Obsolete Bank Note Group Fine and Better Three Examples.
    Miamisburg- The Washington Social Library Company $1 Feb. 1, 1840 G2 Wolka 1650-01 Originally a subscription library in 1810, the principals of this organization began issuing notes in 1839. When called to task for this illegal activity by the state, the publicity soon sent the house of cards crashing down, with the bank closing in 1841. This popular note depicts Washington crossing the Delaware and grades Fine;
    Painesville- The Bank of Geauga at Painesville Counterfeit $10 May 18, 1855 C26 Wolka 2154-17 This deplorable counterfeit would only have fooled the really uninformed citizens of Painesville. The faces of Governor Joseph Vance (left) and Ceres are simply bad. Extremely Fine;
    Sandusky City- The Union Bank of Sandusky City Counterfeit $5 Nov. ?, 1852 C10 Wolka 2407-06 All of the Ohio State Stock Banks including this one had their notes printed from one plate which had removable slugs with each bank name inserted. Today the counterfeits far outnumber the genuine notes. Fine with a small internal split above the "o" in Stock.

    Estimate: $500 - $600.
