    New Orleans, LA- James Cosgrove $1 Dec. 21, 1862
    James Cosgrove's business, Cosgrove & Boyle, was located at 5 St. Charles St. The company provided leather goods, including harnesses, saddles, and holsters. Records show they provided two orders of saddles, valises, crupper, holsters, and breast straps to the Confederacy in March of 1862 that totaled $24,000. This note is a nice departure from the generally low grade examples we sold in the past. Most recently we sold a PCGS VG 8 for more than $300. This example is graded Very Fine 20 by PCGS and features a central vignette of the cadre of goods sold by the company.
