    New Iberia, LA- J.J. Mistrot 50¢ Mar. 20, 1862
    Jean Jacques Mistrot was born in France and arrived in Louisiana in 1840. He owned a general store and saw mill and became involved in managing and financing blockade running during the Civil War. While this note may not be for the condition conscious faint of heart, it is a miracle that it has survived the intervening 151 years since it was first issued. Good, with multitudes of internal splits and body tears and a number of body tears. The entire note has been backed with a very tight woven material to preserve the note's structural integrity. This is our first opportunity to offer a fractional denomination from this issuer
