    Jefferson Davis Vignetted New Orleans Rarity

    New Orleans, LA - Bennett & Clark, Harness Manufacturers $1 April 12, 1862
    This is a very rare New Orleans scrip note printed on the back of white-paper, red-ink bank draft forms. The Jefferson Davis vignette at top center is the same style as used on J. D. Butler printed Arkansas Treasury Notes. Green ONE protector dominates the bottom center. Ship at the left. This style is shared by two others notes in the collection: one from New Orleans and the other from Mississippi (with a 48 Magazine St. imprint). Another excellent grade rarity from this interesting Jefferson Davis vignetted collection that is much superior to the only other example we sold back in April 2013. PMG graded Very Fine 30 Net, citing only tears that are miniscule when weighed with the rarity and eye appeal of this note.
