Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a cool note issued from Monroe, Louisiana. This was issued by the Vicksburg, Shreveport and Texas Railroad Company for the amount of $1.00. The actual tracks for this railroad only ran from Vicksburg to Monroe. However, it did join with the Southern and Alabama & Mississippi Railroads to provide a long east-west Deep South link from Selma, Alabama to Monroe. Economic necessity produced this issue of paper money, while the fall of Vicksburg suspended the operations of the VS & T Railroad. It has the printed date of issuance of January 13th 1862. This is the $1 design that has the large and elaborate green underprint that features a passenger train flanked by a standing Native American warrior at left and a simple decorative panel at right. It was redeemable in the "circulating medium of Louisiana" when presented in sums of $5. This one is in beautiful condition and is hand signed and numbered as it should be. The note measures 6-3/8ths inches by 2-3/4ths inches in overall size. The note comes in an acid-free holder for display and preservation.
