    (Hunnewell, KY)- Hunnewell Furnace 5¢ 1871 Hughes UNL
    In 1845, a pig-iron furnace was constructed by John Campbell, John Peters, and John Culbertson. It was later rebuilt for larger capacity in 1871. No other examples of this scarce issuer's notes have passed through our auctions. Though this piece is a well circulated Good, with some splits, it is still very scarce. The remnants of an "Eastern KY Tollway" stamp are still visible on the face. Hughes lists only the $1 denomination for this merchant.
