    The Queen of State Bank of Ohio Notes

    Wooster, OH- The State Bank of Ohio, Wayne County Branch $3 Nov. 19, 1863 G1590a Wolka 2870-18
    If the $50 is the King of State Bank of Ohio notes, then this $3 is the Queen. The $3 received a minor facelift during the final ABNCo redesign cycle with design elements moved around and a splash of color added. Very few were produced between 1861 and 1863, and most of the notes printed were destroyed before they could be issued as branches wound up their affairs and became National Banks. As a result, there are only two issued examples (both on this branch) along with a face proof from the Washington Branch known. PCGS grades this note Apparent Very Fine 20 due to two small rust stains near the signatures. On a note of this excessive rarity, these tiny imperfections are not of any significance.
