||Kirtland, OH - Kirtland Safety Society Bank $3 Mar. 9, 1837 OH-245 G6 Wolka 1424-08 Rust 6. PCGS Very Fine 30. A popular denomination from the Kirtland series and the bottom position of the lesser denomination plate by Underwood, Bald, Spencer & Hufty, N. York & Philad. The titles, with large BANK, are left of center, and to the right is a vignette of an early locomotive and cars in three-quarter head-on view. Flanking are cameo heads with "1." Nearly identical ends have "3" numerals in the center and each corner shows a classical cameo profile head facing outward. Secretarial signature of J. Smith, Jr. and S. Rigdon, the most often seen signature combination on the regular Kirtland notes. This is a beautiful type note, and is easily on the cusp of PPQ status. This bold $3 Kirtland note is evenly and perfectly margined all around. A pleasing Kirtland $3 denomination that will fit into a higher grade set easily. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
