SMYTHE SALE OFFERS "ELONGATED" ADVERTISING NOTE

This may cause some spam filters to burp, but it's too good not
to include.  The following is from the press release for the
Smythe & Company Fall currency auction:

"Following the obsoletes is a group of advertising notes, of
which Herb and Martha Schingoethe gathered perhaps the largest
collection in the world. Some of the extreme rarities offered
include an 1866 T. Hurle $1000 note from New Haven, Connecticut,
incorporating a photographic rendering of an Original Series
Fourth National Bank of the City of New York note; an extremely
interesting and unusual $50 Chicago advertising note with an 1864
Confederate front for a device purported to provide, in today's
terminology "natural male enhancement;"

[The note is not listed in Robert Vlack's 2001 book, "An
Illustrated catalogue of Early North American Advertising Notes."
The upcoming Smythe sale catalog is not yet on their web site,
but I'm curious to see a picture of the note. -Editor]
