    Buffalo Forge, VA- A(dam) G. Bradley 25¢; $1; $5/$3 1865-75 J-L PB88-04; PB88-08; PB88-UNL Very Fine.
    Adam G. Bradley was a physician and apparently also a merchant. The three notes in this group were signed by members of the Daniel C.E. Brady family. The signer of the $3 note that was legitimately altered to a $5 is Daniel C.E. Brady a wealthy farmer who also served as Postmaster in Buffalo Forge in the late 1860s and 1870s. He had a daughter, Ann G. Brady, who signed the 25¢ note payable at the store of "Dr. Bradley" while the third ($1) note is signed by Mrs. Daniel Brady. In a sense, these were "checks" written by the Brady family for day to day needs that were honored by Dr. Bradley at his store. An interesting arrangement that negated the need for a bank account. The notes have seen limited circulation and are free of repairs and meaningful condition issues. All are excessively rare, with the $5/$3 completely unlisted.
    From the Aberon Collection of Virginia Obsolete Banknotes (Total: 3 notes)
