    Pleasing Mid-Grade T4

    Manuscript Endorsement "Thos. K. Jackson" T4 $50 1861 Cr. 4 PCGS Extremely Fine 40.
    The $50 denomination was part of both the four and two subject sheet arrangements that were printed by National Bank Note Company in March and April, 1861. This note, with serial number 921, was part of the second shipment of 1000 sheets that escaped confiscation by federal authorities by the narrowest of margins while being shipped out of New York in late April, 1861. It incorporates a vignette titled Slaves Hoeing Cotton that appeared on several antebellum Southern bank notes. Fewer than 200 examples are known to exist and this note is one of the finer examples known with no meaningful condition distractions. In addition, it has an issue endorsement of Capt. Thomas K. Jackson, who was serving at the time of this endorsement under General Wise's command at Lynchburg, VA. A lovely note with many of the attributes of an even loftier grade.
