Description

    Urbana, OH- Champaign County Bank Counterfeit $5 Nov.(?) 18, 1852
    Notes for all of the State Stock Banks in Ohio were printed from the same plates, with the only thing changing being the tombstone with the bank name and location. These tombstones were removable from the plate. While this saved the state money it proved to be attractive to counterfeiters. If they could perfect a counterfeit for one of the banks, by default, they had a design for seventeen banks. Wolka was unaware of any genuine examples of this design. This note grades Good with margin chips and tatters as well as a tear in the right margin. The note has also been separated and reattached as well. Having said all of that, this is a rare note with this being only the second example we have offered.
