H3  $10  Serial #402  Cancelled written twice across the face in iron Gaul ink.  Balance, Color & Contrast are well defined even with the issues.  Believe it or not, this is a pretty darn decent example of this $10.00 denomination.  It is fairly easy to find his grade examples of the $50 & $100 if you have the funds; but, not the $5, $10 and $20 notes and the Rare $500 trades, if you can find it at $15K+/-.  Repairs & Small Pcs Out, IC, $3,650.00  obv  rev   TRC- Tyler, TX  uwtx/bwtx  SOLD

H14  $1  #488  1838  Smith/Houston  Difficult to find in any grade, this note exhibits strong contrast, with reasonable balance and above average color.  It has light staining from old tape as well as some water staining visible from the reverse.  CoC & CiC, Fine (+)  $1,995.00  obv  rev        md-cwtx                  
H14  $1  #1132  1838  Smith/Houston  Better balance than last, with same strong contrast and color.  The signatures are a bit faded, but visible, also tape stains.  Closed CoC & CiC, F/VF  $3,150.00  obv  rev     md-usxx      

  

H15  $3  #180  1838  Smith & Houston signatures faded.  Houston's is barely visible in image.  Multiple repairs on this note; but, it still exhibits good contrast & balance and is reasonably priced.  CC, VG(-) $1,925.00  obv  rev    md-cnxx 
H15  $3  #263  1838  Smith/Houston (weak)  Nice Contrast & Balance, just a shade dark, this note is Way Above Average for this scarce denomination!  CC, F/VF  $3,350.00  obv  rev    md-bxxx          





H16  $5  #239  1838  Smith/Houston  It is hard to find a Government $5 in low grade that is a bright as this one.  Nice Color, Contrast & Balance.  CoC & CiC,  PCGS Apparent VF 20  $650.00  obv  rev        md-btx             


 
H17  $10  #2752  1839  Dunlap/Lamar   Good Contrast & Balance; but, the Color is a bit dull with some water staining evident at top border and from back.  There is a very common endorsement, seen on many RoTx notes, the "Confirmation of T. S. Bomatt", in ink on back.  Average, CC, Fine  $335.00  obv  rev      md-buw                           
H17  $10  #1838  Dunlap/Lamar  This note exhibits Choice Color, Contrast & Balance.  A small ink erosion in left signature.  Faded red ink signatures & date.  CC, VF+  $435.00  obv  rev            md-buw         
H17A  $10  #        none in stock at this time

  Comparison Image of  Shield & Star  &c  between H19 and H19b variety    H19/H19b    H19 is incomplete framing at 20 and star with light uneven lines.  H19b has precise lines around 20 and heavier lines outline Star.
H19a  $20  #    none in stock       
H19b  $20  #363  Dunlap/Lamar  31 December 1838  Great Color, Contrast & Balance.  This note has had mending tissue placed across the entire back of the note.  I'm sure it could be removed if someone decided to.  It actually helps protect the note preventing ink erosion or tears!  CoC, VF/XF  $450.00  obv  rev        md-bxx

Consolidated Fund of Texas   


        Cataloging Consolidated Fund notes can be confusing!  You actually need both Criswell & Shull references to figure out what you have and even then you might not be able to figure out which variety you actually have.  If you have questions about the cataloging of any CF note don't hesitate to write me for my opinion.  If I don't have an answer for you, I will contact Mike Stair for his opinion.  I consider Mike to be the foremost authority on these Consolidated Fund notes.  
        I will do my best to explain what variety I'm offering and why I've assigned a number that might not be found in Criswell or Shull.  There are listings that don't exist in Criswell as well as Shull and others that have yet to be assigned a number by Shull.
