Mississippi Obsolete Currency Bank of Madison County MS 25 cents note
SKU: MS Bank Madison County 25 cents #30
An extremely rare twenty five cent obsolete banknote issued by the Bank of Madison County Mississippi from Madisonville in 1838. It is estimated only 1 to 5 of these bills still exist today according the MS currency book. In the center vignette is Amalthea who, according to mythology, was the goat on whose milk the infant Zeus fed. She had a horn which was always full of whatever food or drink anyone wanted, thus the legend of the Horn of Plenty was begun. On the right and left panels stands Athena standing with spear and shield which bears a likeness of the head of Medusa. The serial number of this very rare southern money is #30 and the condition is very good plus with a couple smaller apertures and a hinge on the reverse. The back is plain as printed. The pictures show the front and back of the obsolete Madisonville Mississippi bank note that is for sale at Brandywine General Store.
