    New Orleans, LA- City of New Orleans $3 July 4, 1862
    A rarely seen note from this earlier City of New Orleans issue. This $3 features a vignette of Liberty amid tropical foliage at top center known as The Tropics. It was engraved by W.W. Rice based on the work of artist Henry W. Herrick. The sailor vignette that was also used for Confederate T18 notes is seen at lower left and a ship is observed at lower right. PCGS assigned a grade of Fine 12 to this example of the much scarcer variety with a handwritten date, other than "18" in the year, along with handwritten serial numbers rather than machine numbered.
