Just prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, the newly formed Confederacy started issuing their own currency. The paper money was not backed by gold, but bearers were promised to be repaid after the war, with the government banking on a Southern victory. Production was in no way uniform, and individual states and even cities issued their own money as well. As the war progressed, Confederate currency became practically worthless, with only a series of 1862 notes from Mississippi being of value because they were backed by stored cotton. Although they became worthless at the time, Confederate currency is now highly collectible due to the wide variety of banks and states that issued them.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
