Description

Confederate States Of America - The State Of Louisiana $1 Banknote February 24th 1862 - Vignette of seated Ceres holding caduceus and shipping in background. An interesting example because of extreme shortage of paper in the South during the Civil War this was printed on reverse of unused earlier pre Civil War Bank of Texas banknotes printed to a much higher quality (see illustration). Size 6| × 2¾| (150mm x 70mm). A scarce example

Hammer Price: £70.00
