||Gatesville, TX - Treasurer of Coryell County $1 Sept. 1, 1862 Medlar 2. PCGS Very Fine 25 Apparent. This is another rare county note, printed a bit more ornately than many Texas county bills from the Civil War era. Printed on thick, white paper with the "Gazette" Print Austin imprint seen at the lower left. Across the center is ONE DOLLAR, which bisects the titles and obligations, with one signature "on the dotted line" at the bottom. At the far left is a small cartouche with ONE DOLLAR. This is listed as a Rarity-7 (1 to 5 known) by Medlar. Designated Apparent, and obviously so with "Edge Tears; Mounting Remnants and Stains on Back." The mounting stains are from harsh glue that shows to the face. The paper body is excellent, so those stains are unfortunate. The Bill Bond example sold for $460 in January 2007 and did not have this pesky problem. The Rowe-Barr example has a large internal tear. The bidders will determine its true value, but this is rare and this is here. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
Realized $517.00. Newman VI (Heritage Auctions, 4/2015), lot 19332. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
