Texas 50¢ Note
Dated "April 21st, 1862."

The North Carolina Collection has very few examples of Civil War-era Texas currency in its numismatic holdings. One specimen is this rare 1862 fifty-cent note, which was circulated and could be exchanged for Confederate treasury notes when presented in Brownsville, Texas, at "J. R. Palmers'" office. This note and others that were, as stipulated, secured by $10,000 in Confederate nationals that were on deposit in the Rio Grande Soldiers' Fund.
