    Classic Cr. 1 Virginia Treasury Note Rarity

    Richmond, VA- Virginia Treasury Note $100 Aug. 13, 1861 Cr. 1
    This is a classic Southern States rarity and one of the highlights of this Davidson Collection section from the auction, as any offering of this much sought after note is always an event. The Jones and Littlefield Virginia reference notes that of the 6,150 pieces of this note issued in 1861, only 83 remained outstanding by 1863. This is one of the nicest survivors from that small group that all fall within the same serial number run. It is a beautiful piece with a bright red overprint, clear signatures, and excellent paper quality. It is one of the most alluring Hoyer & Ludwig printed notes with a vignetted protector across the bottom. These generally break five-figures with ease when offered and we are proud to hold the record for over $30,000 achieved for the finest graded PCGS Choice New 64PPQ example. This is PCGS About New 53.
