    Excessively Rare Cooperative Scrip Note Pair

    Youngstown, OH- The Protective Union Store Co. 5¢; 10¢ Remainders Wolka 2916-01; -02
    The Protective Union Store movement was started as a way of allowing workers to have access to a cooperative store which presumably sold goods at more competitive prices than other outlets. Nationwide, the movement lasted from around 1845 to 1867, with this note circa 1860. The pretty green notes grade Uncirculated, with the 10¢ note having one well hidden pinhole in the lower left corner. Both denominations are presently unique in private hands.
