||Huntsville, TX - Treasurer of Walker County $3 Feb. 20, 1863 Medlar UNL. PCGS Very Fine 20. This is an unlisted Walker County Warrant denomination (would be Medlar 16, after the $2) and the condition is excellent for a Texas Civil War era county note. Printed on the back of a Texas State Treasury Warrant with the imprint of Texas Pr. House. Houston - E. W. Cave. There is a two-color overprint on the face of the note, where deep red WALKER COUNTY is arced above and WARRANT runs along the bottom. In between, the lighter orange "3" and THREE are stacked; all of this tightly packed, over the obscured titles and obligations underneath. The ends have ornamental cartouches enclosing text, and at the right is a counter signature. A rare note; though unlisted, it is now an observed type. This is a problem-free, vibrant example that again fits perfectly well into a county collection. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
Realized $1,116.25. Newman VI (Heritage Auctions, 4/2015), lot 19342. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
