Massachusetts Obsolete Currency Kimball Robinson Quarter Change Note
A Massachusetts Twenty Five Cent Obsolete Scrip from Kimball Robinson and Company issued from Boston on November 17, 1862 and payable at the Eliot Bank. There is a vignette of a boot on the side of this small fractional note, so Kimball Robinson and Co might have been a shoe store, boot makers or maybe even had a tannery. The back has a very elaborate green geometric design with a 25 in the center. This money was issued during the Civil War when hard change was scarce so companies resorted to using these change notes so their businesses could continue to function. We have more than one 25 cent scrip note from Kimball and Robinson available for sale at Brandywine General Store, but we have included a picture of each piece of scrip that we currently have in our stock.
