Description

    Sandusky City, OH- Union Bank of Sandusky City, Ohio State Stock Bank Counterfeit $5 Sept. 1, 1852 C10 Wolka 2407-06
    The background of this note design is unusual. The state of Ohio decided to use a special half inch thick steel plate that featured easily interchangeable drop-in slugs containing the bank name and city. This attracted counterfeiters who had the potential of producing counterfeits for not one, but seventeen, banks if they could perfect the engraved plate. Very few genuine $5s and $10s have survived. To add insult to injury, employees of the printer in Cincinnati ran off sheets of notes on a weekend and placed them in circulation with forged signatures. This note grades Fine.
