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 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.

W5  #     none in stock 
W6  (not AW9A)  #2648  April 28th 1845  $100.00  Thos G Western.  Western was Superintendent of Indian Affairs.  The warrant states it was for "Indian Affairs".  It also says "Drawn on a requisition of the President to be charged as a bond". The document that is found in Western's file says it was "Drawn on Requisition for Indian Affairs".  Found on the back is this statement, "The Collector at Galveston will receive this warrant for dues from Missrs Torry & Bro in the Customs House 28th April 1845".  The signature is that of William Beck Ochiltree who was Secretary of the Treasury.  The back is also endorsed by T. G. Western.  This warrant was cancelled by a very light X at center.  This is the first Washington Warrant I can recall seeing that doesn't have the word Washington after Treasury Department.  It was listed as AW9A by the previous owner as Austin Warrants don't mention the Capitol.  However, the receipt for this document in the Texas Archives says this payment was receipted at Washington.  There is a 9 April 1845 record and a May 9 record for Thomas G. Western's Pay and both of them were signed by Anson Jones then President of the Republic at Washington.  This is a very nice example.  ic, Choice AU  $450.00  obv  rev  cut

* Five (5) only of first eight (8) have been granted 1st choice to C S
TW64  #1996  June 20th 1861  Gov Edward Clark  Pay Private Lt Wood's Minute Co  This probably Lt W. Riley Wood, San Saba Minute Men.  He commanded that Regiment in 1860.  There is no mention of it in 1861; but, this early warrant is close enough to suggest it should be his Company of Rangers.  ic, XF  $150.00  obv  rev    SOLD
TW64  #3243  July 27, 1861  Gov Edward Clark  Services as Surgeon in Captain Harrison's Company.  First I've ever seen made out for a surgeon and worth a premium in my opinion!  Gebhard endorses this warrant over to a company on the back.  This too is likely the most formal endorsement I've seen.  Captain Thomas Harrison is shown as being in command January 1861 - June 1861 - Texas Mounted Rangers, Waco.  This is likely THE Pay Warrant for that very period in history for this Ranger/Surgeon.  ic, VF+  $185.00  obv  rev 
TW64  #3945  Nov 11th 1861  Rifling Percussioning
? &c State Arsenal G H Todd  Likely a One of a Kind item at this time.  Service for a Ranger Company by the State Arsenal where they tested powder & weapons.  On the back it has a very clear endorsement "Pay to Bearer".  Interest in Pencil.  ic, XF-  $145.00  obv  rev       SOLD   
TW64  #3951  Nov 12th, 1861  Shoeing horses Lt O'Hair's Minute Company.  I haven't been able to find anything on a Lt O'Hair and I'm not sure the name is O'Hair.  Maybe O'Haus?  It is the "Shoeing Horses", the Job Description that is setting this warrant apart.  The red ink at top left I believe are Interest Calculations.  It is endorsed not only by the man or company Rowland & Woolf it is made out to, but also by the Attorney Josiah Brantly.  ic,F+ $135.00  obv  rev   
TW64  #4026  Nov 25th, 1861  Pack Mule Furnished Capt Harrison's Company. 
January 1861 - June 1861 - Texas Mounted Rangers, Waco.  Likely proof that Capt Harrison continued on as Ranger Captain through 1861.  There was another Ranger Capt. W. R. Harrison, but he didn't show up until 1862 so I don't believe he would be our man.  This is a nice clean piece, ic VF/XF  $150.00  obv  rev         SOLD   
TW64  #4094  Dec 5th? 1861  Pay Private in Lt Salmon's Company (John Salmon Atty)  Interest Calculations on face in pencil.  Endorsed John Salmon on back.  There is no mention of John Salmon as Lieutenant in Ranger records; but, he is of course listed as Captain Rangers beginning in 1862 for two different Co.  I believe this makes this to be rather unique in it's own right.  ic, VF  $180.00  obv  rev     
TW64  #4097  Dec 5th 1861  Pay Private in Lt Lowe's Company  (John Salmon Atty)  Lt. John C. Lowe is found in the Ranger listing as commanding March through December 1860.  This document is proof that he was still in charge of a Ranger company into December of 1861.  w/interest  $75.75  Salmon endorsed.  ic, VF/XF  $150.00  obv  rev    
TW64  #4478  January 9th 1862  John Harmon per J R Leary Pay as Lieutenant in Captain Wood's Minute Company, $14.40, Protection of the Frontier.  Must be One (1) Month Officer Pay.  Captain Riley Wood commanded a Minute Company in 1861 & 1864.  Min Co are Mounted Rangers.  Ink Burn, ic, XF  $145.00  obv  rev     
****************  The next two (2) warrants are held back for J C ***************** 

TW64  #1988  June 20th 1861  Edward Clark Gov.  Pay as Sergeant in Lt Wood's Minute Company. 
This probably Lt W. Riley Wood, San Saba Minute Men.  He commanded that Regiment in 1860.  There is no mention of it in 1861; but, this early warrant is close enough to suggest it should be his Company of Rangers.  ic, VF+  $150.00  obv  rev  
TW64  #1998  June 20th 1861  Edward Clark Gov.  Pay as Private in Lt Wood's Minute Company.  Same as above, even attorney.  ic, XF  $145.00  obv  rev

Post War Texas
TW unlisted  (TW79)  For the time being I'm going to call this Certificate Texas Warrant #79.  TW80, which are usually dated 1868, are the documents we see from time to time.  The example of TW80 in Shull has written Act/Order date of 13 March 1868 and the document is titled, like most other warrants, TREASURY WARRANT.  Some I have images of in my files have "Order Date" in 1869.  This item is different in that it has the title:  Fractional Certificate, of Public Debt, under Act of November 9th, 1866.  This warrant is said to be Fundable in "six per cent Bonds".  I don't recall having ever seen one of these before.  That doesn't mean it's Rare.  There could be a horde of them out there somewhere.  Like Early State documents, post-War warrants haven't been recorded in any reference, other than the TW80.  This is a Remainder and while it is unissued I will call it an Au/Cu with some light handling to be more precise.  Interesting Specimen,  $125.00  obv  rev       Returned to Owner
