||Goliad, TX - Treasurer of the County of Goliad $3 March 22, 1862 Medlar UNL. PCGS Very Fine 25 Apparent. An unlisted denomination from a rare series and a lovely note from the Texas Civil War era. This is printed on the back of a McIlhenny, Wills & Brother fiscal form, without an imprint. The title, GOLIAD/COUNTY WARRANT is across the top center in two lines, and flanked by a bolded "3" at each end. Detailed obligations are across the note. At the left, a registered signature area that has been signed by the treasurer. The top and bottom are discretely bordered with a repeating "3" spaced pattern to prevent note raising. It faces up quite well, but designated Apparent as is so often the case. Noted are "Splits, Tears, and Tape Repairs." But when two specialists discuss this note, they will likely comment that this is "choice," which is certainly the case when you compare it to others like the Rowe-Barr collection. More importantly, the series was not in the Bill Bond collection sale in 2007. Another excellent county note opportunity in this sale. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
Realized $646.25. Newman VI (Heritage Auctions, 4/2015), lot 19333. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
