    Rome, GA- (R.A. McGinnis) 50¢ Aug. 2, 1862
    A remainder believed to be for merchant R.A. McGinnis due to a similar style when compared to a $1 that we have auctioned on McGinnis and because both notes were printed by Mason's Job Office Rome. The $1 graded PCGS Apparent VF 20 and realized $493.50 last January. The current example grades Fine with a contemporary repair on the back. Two penned endorsements by someone from Reynolds, Georgia is found on the back, too. Also, another person pencilled a letter on the back of this note. We will let our bidders delve on the letter, but we have gleaned a few words including, "contents of my pocket book."
