    Sandusky, OH- The Bank of Sandusky $50 G12a Wolka 2382-18 Proof
    The bank was organized in 1834 with a charter expiration date of May 1, 1850. Due to some inappropriate loans, the bank failed in January 1849. It is uncertain whether the bank ever issued this design although bank commissioner reports indicate that it did issue $50s during the course of 1839-42. Created by the firm of Casilear, Durand, Burton & Edmonds, the design features a large vignette of a maiden seated by a shield containing the state seal of Ohio as well as vignettes of Washington in uniform standing and an early steamboat. PCGS grades this note Apparent About New 53 due to some minor mounting damage and repairs on the back. This seems to consist of two very small pieces of a white colored adhesive covering two equally small slits or punctures between the "5" and "0" in the upper left corner 50 and the top of Washington's vest. There are two recorded examples known to the hobby today. 6 POC.
