LUMBERMAN'S BANK. All the notes of this bank have the engraved date of Sept. 1, 1857. 'Dubuque Iowa' appears right above the date. All notes were hand signed by E.L. Fuller, banker, and E.C. Blair, cashier. All notes also have printed on them, 'to E.L. Fuller, Rockford, Illinois.' There is no evidence that serial numbers or plate letters were used. Individual liability was on this series. The printers were Rawdon, Hatch & Edson, New York.
