    Williamsport, OH- E.S. Davis 5¢; 10¢; 25¢ Sep. 1862 Wolka 2836-01; -02; -03
    Ebenezer Sigler Davis was a respected citizen and merchant who issued $300 worth of this scrip as a means of making change in 1862. His son, Oliver Davis, signed the notes which, according to local sources, were all redeemed. This suggests that these notes were probably kept by the family for some time. There are not many around. Only two examples of each of the two lower denominations are presently known along with eleven examples of the 25¢ note. All three are fully issued and grade from Very Good-Fine (10¢ note) to Fine (5¢ note) to Extremely Fine (25¢ note). No damage or repairs are noted.
    From The Wendell Wolka Collection (Total: 3 notes)
