    New Orleans, LA- D.J. Hockersmith & Co. - Southern Mills $2 Jan. 1862 PMG Very Good 10.
    Printed in red and blue, this $2 note has vignettes of a beehive (an allegory for Industry) and Justice. A notice in the Times Picayune in late January, 1862 indicated that a previous milling partnership located at the address listed on this note had been dissolved due to the death of one of the partners and that Hockersmith had assumed all of the business' liabilities and would continue it. A good bit rarer than the more frequently encountered 50¢ and $1 denominations. Evenly circulated with faint X pen cancels in a comment free holder.
