    New Orleans, LA- W. Hoyer & Co. 50¢ Mar. 1 , 1862
    One of over 125 scrip issuers in New Orleans in the months leading up to the city's capitulation in late April, 1862, W. Hoyer & Co. was located at 226 Tchoupitoulas Street. Thus far we have been unable to determine what business the firm was in. This is the first time we have offered the 50¢ denomination on this issuer and it is unimpaired, a rarity for New Orleans scrip. PCGS grades the note Fine 15.
