    Gouverneur, NY- Egert & Co. at Charles Anthony & Co. 5¢ Oct. 20,1862 Harris H5 Very Good-Fine.
    Your cataloger speculates that the issuer, Egert & Co., was probably a commission merchant partnership of Charles P. and Louis A. Egert who are both listed as merchants in the 1860 census. The firm of Charles Anthony & Co. was apparently a local private bank that served as the redemption agent for this scrip. Given the note's wartime issue, the vignette of America on the left end seems appropriate. We have only sold one other 5¢ note on this issuer which was part of a group lot in 2003, nearly sixteen years ago.
