    Criswell Plate Note. (Little Rock), AR- State of Arkansas $20 Eight Percent Coupon Bond Jan. 22, 1862 Cr. 61G
    This example is listed as a R9 and it is the Criswell plate note. These war bonds were redeemable after five years on July 1, 1866. Arkansas Treasurer Oliver Basham, originally from Virginia, served from 1861-64 before enlisting in the Confederate Army as a Lt. Colonel. He was killed on Sep. 23, 1864 at Pilot Knob in Iron County, Missouri. Three coupons remain attached. J.D. Butler, a printer in Little Rock, printed these bonds. A number of numeric notations are seen in pencil on the back. Very Fine.
