    Description

    Tama, IA- Tama Paper Mills & Filler Co. 5¢, 10¢, 25¢, 50¢, $1, $5 March 4, 1901
    A neat set of six scrip pieces issued by this lumber company. All are payable to "Any Merchant in Tama" and call for the recipient to deliver the appropriate amount in merchandise and charge the company's account. We've not seen or heard of any other examples of this scrip, and feel that our consignor, who paid $500 for this set of six pieces some years ago, very likely got himself a heck of a bargain. All of the notes grade Fine or better, a couple with tiny chips out at the top, and all obviously circulated during the period they were issued.
