Description:

1843 Republic of Texas 12 1/2 Cent "Exchequer" Note, Cr. A10, PCGS Very Fine 25.

Note: These notes were the last paper money of the Republic of Texas, issued between 1842-1845 and signed by President Sam Houston. Most of the notes issued had been redeemed by 1852, making it an exceedingly rare survivor. This example is a previously unknown note, having descended through the family until now. An honest piece, with a small tear to the central fold, creasing, and minor edge damage.
Estimate $6,000-8,000
