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 a Houston, Texas, Government of Texas 1938-39 $1 in PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45. (TXCRH14A). No. 50, Plate A (Lot 90022). ​

This is the rarer $1 variety that features small stars surrounding the Lone Star in Liberty's shield. A maiden is at top holding a key next to a seated lion. Ornate "1" counter at top right. Dated March 1838. At the time of cataloging, PMG has graded just six notes for the variety, with this note proudly sitting atop the pop report. The next highest example is in a Choice Fine grade. Any Texas collector should jump at the chance to upgrade to this attractive mid-grade offering. PMG comments "Cut Cancelled, Pinholes."
