State of Arkansas, Little Rock

187 _

This note is part of an emission by the Act of March 16, 1871 which authorized the issue of interest bearing (5%) certificates receivable for state and county taxes and other dues to the state except interest on the public debt. The $10 features a vignette of America which was re-federalized for this issue. When used on the 1861 T-3 CSA $100 treasury note, the shield had been changed to have fewer, wider stripes and many of the stars in America’s drapery had been muted or removed. These changes were reversed for this note. The center vignette depicts a wagonload of cotton bales. Very scarce, seldom offered.
