    New Orleans, LA- James Cosgrove $1 Jan. 31, 1862
    An interesting note from a rare issuer that we have offered just a half dozen times before. It includes a central vignette depicting pieces of horseback riding equipment and a partial rubber stamping of a New Orleans street address on the back. 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 $1 is very attractive even with the minor rust that earned this note a Net grade. The minor rust is on the back and the term "minor" might be an overstatement. PMG Very Fine 20 Net.
