New London, Ohio Merchant Bank Note For 5 Cents
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a neat piece of currency from pre-Civil War Ohio. This is a store bank note from the 1850's that was printed but never issued. It was printed for the amount of 5 Cents, for the merchant, H H Robinson. The store was located in New London, in Butler County, Ohio. The note was never dated or signed but we know it was from the 1850's because of the "185_" that could be filled in as needed when issued. This one is in beautiful unissued condition. In the center of the note, it has the image of the building that we assume of the Robinson store. A neat and unusual piece as many of the fractional notes that we see are from the 1860s, a product of the shortage of coin during the Civil War. It measures 4-1/4th inches by 2-5/8ths inches in overall size. It comes in an acid-free holder for display and preservation.
