Nothing spoke more to the Confederacy’s hopes and intention of forming an independent nation than the establishment of its own system of currency. Its military and economic problems were intertwined. Measuring 12 by 36 inches in a gilt frame with gray matting, this display contains eight pieces of Confederate currency of different denominations from the Act of February 17, 1864 issue of Confederate currency, payable two years after ratification of a treaty. This omits only the fifty cent note. From top to bottom the notes are: one, two, five, ten twenty, fifty, one hundred and five hundred dollars.

We have not attempted to remove the notes from the frame to examine the backs or fully gauge condition, but they appear to have good color, tone and no folds, qualifying them for uncirculated condition, but we encourage you to carefully inspect our photographs or contact a member of our staff if necessary.    [sr]
