    Minnesota Tiffany Bros., Buffalo Commission Scrip notes are very rare and there are only two reported examples of this Heaton (a dealer in boots and shoes) type. This is the Hewitt plate note and is also featured in the color plates in the front of the book. An elk is in a stream at the far left. The merchant title and texts are at the right. The text is perpendicular on the back and in English and German. Near perfect centering, with trivial handling only, and an important Commission Scrip note. The only example we have sold, it first realized $282 as part of the Eric P. Newman collection.
