PMG Choice Fine 15 - H-14A - Serial # 972 Cut canceled. RARE NOTE !! The Government of Texas notes were the first engraved notes issued by the Republic. They were also the first produced by the bank note company of Draper,Topper, Longacre & Co. of Philadelphia and New York. The entire $1.00 series is scarce/rare especially the H-14A variety. The H-14 variety shows Liberty standing at left holding shield with a single Lone Star at center. The H-14A variety (Only about 10 notes known) has Liberty standing at left holding shield with small stars around the large star. The majority I have seen are very low grade problem notes with damage and repairs. This note has full borders and the cut cancels are very clean and well done with no repairs. At the center is a Queen holding a key next to a lion. The Capitol of the Republic of Texas was in Houston April 19, 1837 to January 18, 1840.
