They were also redeemable at several other emporiums in Arkansas as well as by two stores in Texas - Alexander & Allen in Sherman and J.M. Smoot in Denton. Also, three of these pieces presented here were redeemable in the Cherokee Nation. The $1 note is of the variety with the backwards "$" sign in the denomination.
