    1912 Treasury Department Dispersal Letter with Notes.
    T18 $20 1861 VG, CC
    T28 $10 1861 VG, CC
    T30 $10 1861 VG, HOC
    T52 $10 1862 VG, COC
    T57 $50 Fine, COC.
    This historically important lot has an aged October 15, 1912 letter from Secretary of the Treasury, Franklin MacVeagh, to Grand Army of the Republic Post 214 offering an assortment of Confederate notes to the GAR post. Since these notes were seized by the Union Army from the Confederate Treasury near the end of the Civil War, it makes sense that all six notes are cancelled in one form or another since they were not current in 1865. The letter also shows splitting among the folds.
