    Rare War of 1812 NY Scrip Issue

    Johnsburgh, NY- Johnsburgh Association 50¢ Dec. 30, 1814 Harris-UNL PCGS Banknote Very Fine 20.
    A wonderful early piece of New York scrip from a community which is unlisted in the estimable Harris New York scrip reference. Johnsburgh is a hamlet located in tiny Warren County. Samuel Morehouse, whose inn is mentioned as the location where this scrip is payable, is listed on the county rolls as a tavern keeper as late as the 1820's. PCGS Banknote mentions adhesive residue and minor edge splits, but they are minuscule and of little importance on this very likely unique example.
