    Description

    Fr. 1330 50¢ Third Issue Spinner PCGS Choice About New 55.
    The signature combination of John Allison as Register and John New as Treasurer is only found on this Spinner number. Allison and New were in office together from June 30, 1875 until January 7, 1876, long after Third Issue notes had ceased to be issued. These notes were clearly not intended as regular issue, but they were probably signed to be given to friends or as some form of a patronage act. In any event, they became Legal Tender once signed, as Allison and New were both Legal signers. A number of circulated examples such as this one show that these notes did indeed circulate as currency. This piece has nice, even margins, good centering, bright bronzing, and deep, original embossing.
