CS $100 CSA NOTE 22 DEC 1862

$115.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 172-5882

This was produced in 1862 by the engraving company Keatinge & Ball of Columbia, SC. Edward Keatinge ran an engraving company in New York, but would later be recruited by the Confederacy to produce money.  He partnered with Thomas Ball, of Virginia, and held shop in Richmond, eventually re-locating to Columbia, SC.

The bill is a good quality two-colored note. It contains a myriad of Southern symbolism starting with the engraved portrait of John C. Calhoun, former Vice President to John Adams and Andrew Jackson, in the bottom left corner.  The opposite corner is the Roman/Greco figure of the Confederacy personified.  Centered on the bill is the engraved image of slaves weeding cotton.  Serial numbers 137139 frame the center image.  The date “DEC 22” is handwritten in the top right corner.  There is a tear in the top right corner.  The word “HUNDRED” is in orange-red ink, and written over with “WILL PAY TO BEARER ON DEMAND/ ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS/ WITH INTEREST AT TWO CENTS PER DAY.”

The reverse has two interest paid stamps, one dated 1864 and the other 1865.

This $100 note is an interesting part of a turbulent history of southern currency, and a great addition to anyone interested in Confederate bank notes. [mk] [ph:L]
