Description Alexandria, VA - Corporation of Alexandria $7 July 7, 1854 Jones & Littlefield TA05-46. PCGS Very Good 10 Apparent. An important Virginia / District tie note issuer and odd denomination. It is rare for a municipal issue to use an odd denomination like this. The central vignette shows a placid scene of a Native American father paddling a canoe while his son relaxes and his wife tends to the baby. At the left end, a farmer strides through the countryside beneath an agricultural arbor; a SEVEN / 7 block is below. At the right end, a "7" counter is above an oval-framed picture of an allegorical female reclining on bales. A large red SEVEN protector is across the bottom, above the dual imprint of Baldwin, Adams & Co. New York / Bald, Cousland & Co. Philada. Grading notes "Edge Tears and Hinge Repairs." Very appealing from the face and seldom encountered. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. From Newman X (Heritage Auctions, November 2018), lot 20182, realized $2400.
