CS $5 CSA NOTE 17 FEB 1864

$45.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 172-5876

This was produced in 1864 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 in fair condition with signs of fading due to age.  The center is an engraving of the Virginia state capitol building located in Richmond with a large medallion numbered “5” in the top right corner.  Bill has hand written serial number 37193.  This is a 5th series bill indicated in small lettering in top corner, right hand side, with serial letters “C”.

The reverse is decorated in ornate blue ink with “FIVE” and circular medallions with “5” in the corners.

This $5 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]
