SAVANNAH $2 NOTE DATED 1862 PRINTED ON BACK OF OTHER NOTES

$25.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2020-630

Two-dollar note from the Mechanics Savings & Loan Association of Savannah, Georgia and dated May 31, 1862.  Serial number 2244 in ink. “ONE” in red ink on front from bleed of note previously printed on reverse.

Paper was such a scarce commodity during the war that unused, previously printed items were often reused by printing on the blank reverse. The sheet was usually turned 90-degrees so only a portion of the first print is visible on the reused sheet.

Reverse shows a wonderful example of this as center portions of two $1 notes from Merchant’s Back of Macon are displayed. “ONE” in red ink on this side also.

Very interesting Southern note illustrating the resourcefulness of folks facing a shortage of paper during the Civil War.  [jet]
