Republic of Texas $500

Our September CCO Auction will feature the Republic of Texas Collection, consisting of 55 obsolete notes from the Lone Star State. This is one of the most extensive collections we have had the pleasure of presenting, offering obsolete collectors a fantastic opportunity to acquire these elusive treasures. One such note we are offering from the collection is an Austin, Republic of Texas 1839-41 $500 in PMG Very Fine 30.

The note is dated 1839 and has a Rarity 8 rating. It displays the imprint of Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson New Orleans – Rawdon, Wright & Hatch New York. Commerce and Plenty are seated at center with various trade goods, with a ship in the background. At right is allegorical Liberty holding a pole, cap and shield. The reverse displays a red-orange color design with large star at center. High denomination notes from this series are always in demand by collectors. PMG comments "Cut Cancelled."
