    Impressive Louisiana-Texas Tie Note

    Shreveport, LA- R.W. Rodgers, Payable at his office (at) Jordan's Saline, Texas $2 July 7, 1862 Remainder Medlar 2 Crisp Uncirculated.
    This is an unusual tie note, collected more often with Texas and listed in the Bob Medlar Texas SPMC published volume. It is printed on thin, translucent white paper and certainly was printed in Louisiana. Rodgers, a Missouri native, was a Confederate colonel at the outbreak of the war. The Trans-Mississippi Department was in need of salt, to preserve meat and for other purposes, and Rodgers was ordered to Jordan's Saline, now known as Grand Saline, in Van Zandt County to reopen the salt works. The operation was successful, and Rodgers remained there until the end of the war. Vignetted ends with titles across. Blue vignetted back with a steamboat on the river flanked by "2" protectors. Light stains but excellent grade, as it is the nicest piece we have offered.
