    Description

    Washington, OH- The State Bank of Ohio, Guernsey Branch Counterfeit $5; Counterfeit $10 1847-50 C1550 (SENC); C1558 Wolka 2757-20; -27
    Due to their success, the branches of the State Bank of Ohio attracted swarms of counterfeits such as these two examples from the Guernsey Branch in Washington. The $5, which grades Very Good-Fine, is betrayed by a really bad portrait of Franklin, although the red back is a better effort. The $10 is betrayed by the telltale diagnostic that the farmer's knee does not touch the interior scalloped line on the counter in the central vignette. The $10 grades Fine with a light damp stain over the left serial number. Both designs are very scarce from this branch.
