    Excessively Rare Printed on Cloth Shepherdstown Note

    Shepherdstown, VA- Corporation of Shepherdstown 5¢ Nov. 1, 1861 Jones TS05-05
    An incredible rarity, as this otherwise ordinary piece is printed on linen cloth (not mentioned, by the way, on the PMG holder). The estimable Jones and Littlefield Virginia reference lists this note with its highest rarity and desirability listing for issued notes which are not unique, Rarity 7G (2-4 known), with this the first example printed on cloth we have had to offer in any of our sales. PMG Choice Fine 15.
