Well worn for sure and with a missing corner but an attractive item for that old Civil War era wallet. Hand endorsed and dated Sept. 13, 1860 the note is drawn on a Sanford, Maine bank and depicts ladies at work before the looms. Like so many riverside communities in the small textile mill doted New England countryside, the looms of Sanford, Maine represented a primary means of existence in the pre Civil War era. With the coming conflict the New England loom and the women that operated them would cloth and to a large degree shelter the Union Army. The inflation of the time would lead to wide usage of private script. Redeemable only at the small banks upon which they were drawn, such script from home frequently found itís way to the "front" and to the pockets of cash starved soldiers who used the local tender at the quarters of the regimental sutler. He would redeem the script when returning East to buy more goods. A neat little piece of history offered here at a reasonable price and in keeping with our commitment to offer something for collectors at every level. please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!!.
