Description

    Zanesville, OH- The Zanesville Market House / Craig & Houk 6-1/4¢; 12-1/2-50¢ 1816 Wolka 2957-01; -03
    From the last issuer listed in the massive Ohio catalog of obsolete paper money, these two notes were issued by the partnership of Craig & Houk. Craig was Zanesville's first mayor and ran for Governor in 1814. He received 51 votes statewide. In 1817 he was appointed Collector of Taxes and promptly left town with the funds he had collected. He turned up years later in St. Louis. The 6-1/4¢ note grades Very Good-Fine with a short fold split; there are two examples presently known. The second note is apparently an error, with references to both 12-1/2¢ and 50¢ on the note. It grades Good with chunks out of the left and right margins. Three examples of this denomination are presently known.
