    Madison Court House, VA- The Blue Ridge Turnpike Company 3¢ Jones & Littlefield PM15-04 PMG Very Fine 20.
    A very scarce note, particularly in this denomination. The turnpike consisted of a 56 mile road completed in 1853 that ran from New Market to the railhead in Gordonsville, linking the Shenandoah Valley to markets in the east. Like much of the Shenandoah Valley it sustained massive damage during the Civil War and was abandoned soon after. We've had only a single 3¢ note in any of our sales, with a lower grade example fetching $805 in our FUN auction fourteen years ago.
