    Beautiful 64PPQ Endorsed T6

    Manuscript Endorsement "W. J. Anderson" T6 $50 1861 Cr. 6 PCGS Very Choice New 64PPQ.
    This $50 was dated on September 3, 1861 by the Treasury Department and was placed in circulation 13 days later. The following manuscript endorsement is found on the back, "Issued by me / Sept. 16/61 / Maj W(illiam) J. Anderson / Q(uarte)r M(aste)r Memphis / Tenn." Anderson served as a quartermaster at Memphis into the year 1862 under the command of General Leonidas Polk. He was then transferred to Columbus, Mississippi in November, 1862. The end of the war saw him paroled on May 17, 1865. The color and paper of this note are excellent. After Major Anderson issued this piece, it was carefully preserved, as we cannot find a single fold and embossing is still seen throughout this T6. A long forgotten collector did pencil its Bradbeer number and rarity rating on the back, but this act only adds to the desirability of this beauty.
