    Westport, MA- Town of Westport 25¢ Dec. 1, 1862 PCGS Apparent Very Fine 20.
    Len purchased this in our Eric P. Newman sale in May, 2016. It was cataloged there as: "An extremely rare and desirable coastal Massachusetts scrip note, and the first we have seen. The key to the note's identification is its tie to the Merchants Bank, New Bedford and payable with that cashier, which is noted in fine text at the top. Typeset on white paper with TOWN OF WESTPORT at each end within pattern borders. Only some 'Stains' are noted, but this consists of some minor foxing." We have seen nothing from this community before or after that offering.
