    Description

    Opelousas, LA- Town of Opelousas $1 Dec. 24, 1861
    We've had several different denominations of the circa-1838 Opelousas municipal issue, but this is the first Opelousas Civil War era town emission that we have had to offer. It's printed on gray paper and has what appears to be an oval shaped punch cancel at the top left end. Fine-Very Fine, and quite rare.
