Texas Historic Paper - 1862 $5 Texas State Tresaury Warrants
Warrants are similar to checks but payable by a state or governmental entity, in this case Texas.
F. R. Lubbock likely references Francis R. Lubbock, governor of Texas, 1861
This warrant has been "redeemed", which is why the "x" is marked through it. Some interesting "holes" in this one; bugs or mice somewhere in the last 160 years it has been around.
Also comes with the "desk card" by an unknown calligrapher who made up the display tag. Great for framing.
