    Charleston, SC- Louisville, Cincinnati & Charleston Rail Road Co. $500 18__ Remainder Sheheen 649 PMG Very Fine 25.
    The railroad was chartered in the 1830s to construct a rail link between Charleston, SC and the Ohio River near Cincinnati. Appropriate approvals were never received and the scope changed to build a railroad serving the state of South Carolina with a link to Augusta, GA. In 1844, after a merger with another line, the railroad changed its name to the South Carolina Rail Road Company and eventually became part of today's Norfolk Southern Railway. The name change places the time when this note was in use to between the late 1830s and 1844. The focal point of this note is a representation of the corporate seal. It is flanked by two counters, with a female portrait at left and 500 in a panel across the right end.
