    Amazing 37 1/2¢ 1822 Alabama Treasury Issue

    Cahawba, AL- The State of Alabama 37 1/2¢ June 1, 1822 Cr. 66 Rosene 1-10
    This and the 6 1/4¢ notes are the two key denominations to this set, with this the first 37 1/2¢ example we've ever handled or, for that matter, seen offered at public sale. It is listed in Shull as a Rarity 11 (2-4 known) and denoted "Extremely Rare" for price. This specimen is Crisp Uncirculated, with a small area of very light staining on the back which is barely discernable on the face. Any estimate here is merely a guess, as collectors have waited for decades for any opportunity to own a note of this denomination, but we would be quite amazed if our estimate did not prove conservative by the time the hammer falls tonight.
