    Rare Treasurer of Minneapolis Scrip

    Minneapolis, MN - Treasurer of Minneapolis 5c Aug. 1, 1862 F5
    This is a very rare municipal scrip note lithographed on white paper without an imprint. Interestingly, only 5 cents notes were issued from the series. The Minnesota State seal is at the upper left, with the motto L'ÉTOILE DE NORD. A farmer views Native Americans riding by. Titles, denomination, obligation, and "redeemable in currency" are at the right two thirds. The note has one face signature, and an engraved signature at right; the back has the light red signature of R.J. Mendenhall, also a scrip issuer himself. There are four examples listed on the census, which confirms its Rarity-7 status. PCGS Fine 12 and the only example we have sold.
