    Bellefonte, AL- Greyson & Powers 5¢ Feb. 15,1862
    A rare and perhaps unique note from what appears to have been a grocery business in what is now a ghost town. Bellefonte was the Jackson County seat from 1821 to 1859. During the following decade, a post office, courthouse, and church were constructed. The post office was established in 1830, and by 1844, the population had grown to 400. The town suffered severe damage during the Civil War, with the entire town being abandoned by the 1920s. All that remains of Bellefonte today are the cemetery, the chimney of the local inn, and piles of scattered bricks. PCGS Apparent Fine 15, with a small edge split at the right. This example last sold for $1,880 in our 2016 FUN Currency Signature Auction.
