    Description

    Portland, TX - City of Portland $50 Apr. 29, 1841 Medlar 1
    This extremely rare note was the only issue from this Matagorda Co. town, and Medlar lists it as R.7. These notes had the denomination filled in by hand in the upper left corner when issued. This splendid About Uncirculated example is basically New with a light center fold, and the only other imperfections are a few miniscule edge nicks at the top that are mentioned for accuracy. This beautiful note, with three lovely engraved vignettes, should command a strong premium in today's market for these specialized items.
    From the Steve Ivy Texas Collection.
