    New Orleans, LA- Citizens' Bank of Louisiana $10 G26a
    These famous Obsoletes are known as the "Dixie" notes due to the French text and design on the ornate decorative red back. Dix means ten in French and the bills became known as "Dixies." That term was extended to mean New Orleans and the South in general and was further popularized by the Daniel Decatur Emmett song "Dixie (I Wish I was in Dixie Land)" in 1859. This gorgeous red and black remainder includes a vignette of the USS Adriatic on a rough sea by engraver James Smillie based on the work of artist Charles Parsons. Louisiana Governor Andre Bienvenu Roman's portrait also appears on the note. He served from 1831-35 and 1839-43. This wonderful example is graded Superb Gem Unc 67 EPQ by PMG.
