    Description

    St. Paul, MN- State of Minnesota $1 Jan. 29, 1858 Hewitt D1-2
    These notes were issued in part due to the Panic of 1857 and the lack of available scrip as a result. There were 8,333 $1 notes issued that were dated January 29, 1858. The notes were released a few months before Minnesota became a state. This note is the variety that was engraved payable to Thomas Cowan rather than having a handwritten payee. Cowan was the president pro-tem in the Senate of the Minnesota legislature. This rare example is Very Fine, CC with problems observed. The issues include tears, stains, a missing lower left corner, and pinholes.
