Description (Milledgeville), GA - Wills Valley Railroad $3 Apr. 1, 1862. PCGS Fine 12 Apparent. The dollar denominations from this issue date are quite scarce.

Also in red are the location, denomination, and decorative elements. Grading notes "Edge and Internal Splits and Tears." The Alan Dorris example was superior to this and sold for $470.
