    Unidentified Trenton, TN Scrip

    Trenton, TN- Unidentified Issuer 50¢ Nov. 23, 1837
    A rare piece of scrip from an unidentified issuer as the signature is undecipherable. Obsoletes from Trenton are rare as a class. We can recall just handling one other example and that being a single bank note and not a piece of scrip. This piece is serial number 11 and interestingly, the half dollar reverse vignette is printed backwards. This note is payable "at our exchange office in current Tennessee, Alabama, or Mississippi bank notes." The grade is PMG Fine 12, hole. The hole is small and does not affect a single letter of print.
