    T15 $50 1861 Cr. 79.
    The highest denomination from this important series notes engraved and printed by the Southern Bank Note Company, New Orleans (the printer of $100-$50 T5-T6 notes) on thick bond paper with color threads. This is a bold example for the technical grade. Most of the 14,860 issued were well used, harshly cancelled or destroyed. The vignette dies used are all from the classic 1850s Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson repertoire. The series of $50, $20, $10, and $5 notes was quite limited due to production concerns and impending Union occupation. Top left with a train at depot. Lower left is Hope with anchor and at the far right is standing Justice. Bright orange protector across.
    This note was acquired from Mr. Hilton's close personal friend, Greg Ton, in April, 1999 for $5850.
    PCGS grades this example Very Fine 35. This note, with two hammer cancels that do not result in any meaningful paper shrinkage or loss, has good margins, an unoxidized protector, dark signatures, and bright paper. A nice addition to even advanced collections.
