    Excessively rare Wisconsin alterations

    Steubenville, OH- The Farmers and Mechanics Bank of Steubenville Altered $5; Altered $20 Dec. 1839 A5 (SENC); A-UNL Wolka 2478-16; -22
    The Farmers and Mechanics Bank of Steubenville was successful from its beginning in 1817 to its end when its charter was allowed to expire at the end of 1842. At closing its outstanding circulation was just over $15,000. Such success attracted some unwanted attention such as these two notes which were altered from the far less successful Farmers and Mechanics Bank of Burlington, WI so that they appeared to the careless to be issues of the Ohio institution. Both notes grade Very Good with the $5 having scattered small stains and the $20 having mounting remnants and a tape-repaired margin tear. Two examples of the $5 are presently known while the $20 is presently unique.
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection (Total: 2 notes)

    Estimate: $400 - $500.
