Holt, John H., Wye Landing


A steamer vignette is seen at center with a circular denomination counter at right. Printed by Murphy, Printers, 146 Market Street, Baltimore, this note was signed by John H. Holt. The obligation is overwritten as Payable in Current Bank Notes, when the sum of Five Dollars is presented at My Office or Wye Landing. As no record of another example has been found, this note is believed to be unique. Maryland has a bevy of serious collectors notorious for pouncing on such great notes.
