1838 Republic of Texas - $100 CR-H11 "STAR NOTE" Republic of Texas pape money PMG Very Fine 25 1838 Republic of Texas - $100 CR-H11 "STAR NOTE"
PMG Very Fine 25 Net - Edge Damage, Ink Burn - CR-H11 Medlar 45 - Feb. 10, 1838 Serial # 849 - The Republic of Texas "STAR" notes were the first formal currency that the Republic issued. Only $514,510 was issued in all denominations in late 1837 and into early 1838. The $100 Republic of Texas "STAR" note had a printing of only 2200. Medlar rated the $100 as a Rarity 4 - with a 25-50 surviving population in his 1968 book "Texas Obsolete Notes And Scrip". In the Hugh Shull book "Southern States Currency" 2007 he rates the $100 CR-H11 as a RARITY 9 - with a 16-50 surviving population. The CR-H11 variety has the title in error "SEC. OF TRRASY" and the rosettes in border are oval petals rather than round petals. A very scarce and seldom seen variety! PLUS this note HAS NOT been repaired, cut cancelled or ink cancelled like most. This example is missing a small piece at lower right corner tip and has very minor ink burn at signatures. All signatures are clean and sharp including the secretarial signature of "Sam Houston" as president of Texas. The first issue star notes are seldom available and very popular with Republic of Texas collectors.
