    Richmond, VA- Confederate Oyster House 10¢ Feb. 3, 1862 J-L PR60-181 PMG Very Good 10 Net.
    There were no fewer than eight oyster dealers listed in the 1860 Richmond City Directory. Not surprisingly the Confederate Oyster House likely did not survive the fall of Richmond in 1865; certainly not while retaining the name. Thanks to the name, notes from this issuer are quite popular and sought after. The note itself is very rare, with a Jones-Littlefield rarity assignment of R-7, or 2-4 known surviving examples. PMG indicates that the note has been repaired, but the visual impact is relatively minimal. This marks only the third time that we have handled a note from this issuer. Both previous notes, one a 10¢, were from the Eric Newman collection and crossed the auction block for more than $1300
    From the Aberon Collection of Virginia Obsolete Banknotes
