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.
