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  $425.00  obv  rev  cut
