This was produced in 1864 by the engraving company Keatringe & 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 center is an engraving of the Tennessee state capitol building located in Nashville with a large medallion numbered “20” in the top right corner.  In the bottom right corner is a portrait of A.H Stephens, Vice President of the Confederacy.  Bill has hand written serial number 70407.  This is a 5th series bill indicated in small lettering in bottom left side corner.

The reverse is decorated in blue ink with “TWENTY” and circular medallions with “2 0” in the corners.  There is a faint fold in the center and far right-hand side.  Overall, the bill is in good condition with no pin holes and wrinkles.

This $20 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]
