    Fully Issued Louisiana-Texas Tie Note

    Shreveport, LA - R.W. Rodgers, Payable at his office Jordan's Saline, Texas $2 July 7, 1862 Medlar 2. PCGS Extremely Fine 45.
    This is another unusual tie note, like the Lewis Moody notes, 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 re-open the salt works. The operation was successful, and Rodgers remained there until the end of the war. The face style matches the Moody notes with the denomination die at the top center over the bolded written denomination and obligations across; the tie language is in italics at the bottom. Fancy oval cartouche ends show a train at left and steamboat right, both perpendicular, on the face. This has a blue vignetted back with a steamboat on the river flanked by "2" protectors. Fully signed and issued. Wide margins are at the sides. A high-grade example, and very scarce.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
