Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a neat piece from a Civil War pharmacy. This is an original issued 20 cent note. It was printed for the Mount Pleasant Apothecary Store in Roxbury, Massachusetts. It has the printed date of issue of January 1, 1863. This note was issued by famous coin dealer W. Elliott Woodward during the Civil War small change crunch. His autograph appears at the bottom of the note when it was issued. He realized the currency situation of the day, so he made sure he labeled his emission "This is not Currency, but a memorandum for change," and worked out a deal with two Boston merchants to redeem his scrip. This piece of currency is an imprint of noted lithographer Louis Prang. It measures 4 inches by 2-1/4th inches in overall size. It is in excellent issued condition. It comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation.
