    Probably Unique Unlisted Arkansas Town Davis Type

    Millford, AR- W. W. Freighlight & Co. [?] Guaranteed by I. Singer Treasurer $1 August, 1862 Rothert UNL
    A fascinating and exceedingly rare issuer from the Jefferson Davis collection. The town is unlisted in Rothert, which automatically makes this quite significant. It boasts the lengthier official J.D. Butler imprint with his state status. The top center features the Jefferson Davis medallion vignette supported by poorly formed winged cherubs. This series is interesting, as the note is guaranteed by the state treasurer, I. Singer, and signed vertically at the left. A very sharp note with broad margins. Considered Unique by the consignor, and that judgment is more than justified. PMG graded Very Fine 20 Net, with petty tears only. This is another key example from this intriguing historical collection illustrating many nuances of the Confederate-era scrip genre.
    From The Jefferson Davis Collection
