    Rare Temple, Texas Postal Note

    Temple, TX- Postal Note Type IV $1 Feb. 9, 1892
    The first postal note we have ever offered that was issued in Texas. In fact the only other Texas piece we have seen is the plated Type I Jacksborough (sic) issued example on page 157 of Paper Money, September-October 1993 Whole No. 167. The Temple postal note with serial number 009776 has the One Dollar Coupon attached. It grades Very Fine and has an approximate 1.25 inch internal tear with a piece missing, a couple of small edge notches, a small unobtrusive spot, and splits at both top (.25") and bottom (.125") center. We will never know why this piece was never redeemed, but today's benefactor is Texas numismatics as a whole and one certainly determined bidder.
