NUMIS-MYSTERY: DIX NOTES AND THE ORIGIN OF DIXIE

Fred Reed writes: "Does anybody on this list know ANY reference
in a numismatic auction catalog or elsewhere (reference book,
correspondence, etc.) to the supposed connection of New Orleans
"dix" notes to the moniker "Dixie" that pre-dates 1911?   Why I
ask is that my hypothesis is that this cracked notion was hatched
Feb. 1, 1911, and I would be delighted to know anything to the
contrary.  The resource represented in E-Sylum readers' libraries
is awesome, so if anybody can help me out I'd appreciate chapter
and verse (or even a scan) of anything germane from the 19th and
early 20th century that would bring me back down to earth. I can
be contacted at freed3@airmail.net.  Thanks."
