    Searcy, AR- H.K. Abernathy (?) $2 Sep. 1862 Rothert UNL PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    If, in fact, the issuer is H.K. Abernathy he has slid through the documentary screening which your cataloger employs. Handwriting interpretation is tough oftentimes because signatures become just a scrawl or the signature is obscured by a design element such as on this note. In any case, since first discovering it in 2009, we have not seen another example of this high grade well designed Arkansas scrip note. About all that can be said appears on the note which indicates that it was issued by a drug store owner. It has two vignettes which dress it up a bit more than the typical scrip issues from this state.
