Massachusetts Obsolete Currency Kimball Robinson Ten Cent Scrip
SKU: MA Kimball Robinson 10 cents 7217
A Massachusetts Ten Cent Obsolete Scrip from Kimball Robinson and Company issued from Boston on November 17, 1862 and payable at the Eliot Bank. There is 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 10 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. The picture shows the actual ten cent scrip that is for sale at Brandywine General Store.
