    Little Rock, AR- The Cincinnati & Little Rock Slate Company $50-$100 Mar. 1, 1855 Rothert 409-14-17 Uncut Proof Sheet
    The company was incorporated in 1852 and organized in 1854 to quarry slate along the Arkansas River. This lovely and extremely rare two subject proof sheet of the largest denominations, $50 and $100, features vignettes of native Americans gazing upon "civilization" as well as a large vignette of Liberty standing by a shield and eagle. PCGS grades this sheet Gem New 65PPQ with the usual POCs. This is the first time we have been privileged to offer any proofs on this issuer (aside from one $50 proprietary proof in 2012). It is extremely unlikely that many more of these are around. The 1990 ABNCo archives sale had one example of each of the three sheets from this issuer that are being offered in this auction. Those sheets were noted as being mounted on cardstock whereas these are not.
