    Homer, LA- J.A. Avera 50¢ May 1, 1862 Rothert 90-8
    A truly rare bi-state note which was issued in Homer, Louisiana but was payable in Camden, Arkansas. The issuer, J.A. Avera, moved from Alabama to Camden in 1848 and opened a drug store, while also handling cotton and general merchandise. Avera's connection with Homer is not clear, although Homer, located in northern Louisiana, is only about 75 miles from Camden. Avera also issued scrip payable in Camden alone, with no mention of a Louisiana connection. PCGS grades this note Fine 15 noting small edge splits, tears, and minor damage
