1840 $1 Erie & Kalamazoo Rail Road Bank Adrian Michigan Wolka 2556-01 - Apparent Very Fine

The issuer was founded in Adrian, Michigan and later moved to Toledo. The titles on this series are complicated, but it looks like a banknote with its fine engraving by S. Stiles, New York. Haxby classified these as "Checks" and chose not to list them. Under the arced title at the top, a seated allegorical female holds a rudder with a caduceus top; symbols of agriculture and commerce are near her. The corners hold ONE counters, different on the top and bottom. At center in the left end is an oval portrait of recently elected William Henry Harrison. A train in an oval is at the right.

This otherwise Very Fine note, has a small hole above the last O in KALAMAZOO.
