RICHMOND, VIRGINIA 60₵ NOTE DATED 1862 PRINTED ON BACK OF OLD $5 NOTE

$20.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2020-622

Sixty cent note from the State of Virginia, City of Richmond, dated April 14, 1862.  Serial number D2492 in ink. Signature in ink. Well circulated but no pin holes.

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 with center portions of a Bank of Roanoke/Salem $5 bill displayed. Red and black printing on reverse.

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