Confederate Currency - Notes!

During the Civil War there were many notes issued by the Confederate States of America of interest to the Numismatic and antique fraternity. These Confederate Currency or Confederate Notes are unique in the fact that their chief difference is in the size or position of engravers, lithographers, printer names, figures, designs, colors, water marks, serial letters and other distinguishing features.

The Confederate issues may be compared with the continental issues for they too depreciated in value after the Civil War. These Confederate notes represented the pay of the confederate veterans from the birth of their dream.

The Confederate soldiers received their pay in these notes. These notes bore the statement approximately as follows: "Six months after a ratification of a treaty of peace between the United States of America and the Confederate States of America, pay to the bearer the sun of ______ dollars, with interest at 8 percent." As there was no treaty of peace favorable to the Confederates, these notes lost their value upon the unconditional surrender of the Confederates to General Grant. Many of the wealthier Southerners had invested all their money in these Confederate bank notes and were practically made bankrupt.
