A similar estimate is given for two other lots. One is another piece of scrip, also possibly unique — a 25-cent note of Oct. 1, 1874, from the Perdido Bay Lumber Co. of Pensacola, Fla., in PCGS Currency Fine 15. The second lot is a bright red PCGS Currency Gem New 66 Premium Paper Quality India paper $3 proof from the La Crosse County Bank of La Crosse, Wisc.

All proceeds from the sale will be used to supplement the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society’s museum operations and numismatic research efforts and for the benefit of other not-for-profit institutions selected by the society.
