LANCASTER. Shares of $25. black. No 651. Thin paper. Folds with tears and a few holes, partly due to the ink that eate through the paper. Formed Lancaster OH, 1836. Built in 1836/9 from Zanesville OH through Lancaster to the Ohio River, opposite Maysville KY, as part of a proposal for a very long road right down to Florence AL. Three fine vignettes of a stage-coach with 4 horses, approching the end of the road, on the Ohio River, with a steam-boat waiting, also a horse-drawn covered wagon, and a lady with a cornucopia. Extremely rare.
