    Columbia, LA - Parish of Caldwell, Louisiana $5 November 12, 1862. PCGS Very Fine 30.
    A perfect type note for a representative collection of Louisiana parochial issues. Once, this was an incredibly treasured Parish series and long ago the esteemed Parish collector Ed Schlesinger wrote Eric Newman that these were in same league as his six Union Parish notes (all sold by us in the Newman Collection sales). This is a superb condition Parish of Caldwell engraved 1862 note. Though most notes in the cache discovered 25 years ago were from this series, many had wormholes or edge flaws. This note is in exceptional grade for the series and type. Printed on blue paper and without imprint. A train vignette is at the top above the title. Ornamental cartouches with textual denominations are at both ends, each facing inward. An ornamental border is above and below. The strong grade and pedigree form a great combination. One of the best we have seen or sold; underrated in our view. Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection where it realized $423.00 in the Part VII sale.
