What a great piece! This is an original 1862 dated $2.00 note from the State of Louisiana. In the center of the note it has the likeness of the Goddess Ceres who was Goddess of Agriculture. In the center of the note it has the Baton Rouge location of issuance and just to the right of that is the printed date of February 24th 1862. Just below the Baton Rouge mark it has the famous Louisiana state seal that depicts the mother pelican feeding her young. It has the "TWO" overprint in red lettering across the front. This was added at the printer help aid in the prevention of counterfeiting the note. What is so wonderful about this note is that the paper it was printed on was already printed on by the Bank of Texas. It was cheaper for Louisiana to get the used paper rather than to buy the new paper. The note is correctly hand Signed and numbered. The note is in circulated condition as you can see in the pictures. The overall size of the note measures 6-1/4th inches by 2-3/4ths inches. It comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation.
