When the Confederacy seceded from the Union in 1861, it immediately began issuing paper currency. The Confederacy struck no coinage, so paper money was the staple of everyday commerce.
Between 1861 and 1865, the Confederate States of America issued over 100 varieties of currency, some very rare, others very affordable. All are colorful and historically important, and feature vignettes of Confederate heroes, officials and buildings. You can find notes portraying Jefferson Davis, Gen. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, and the Confederate capitol of Richmond.
With increased interest in our Civil War history, the issues of the Confederate States have become more and more desirable, with the earlier issues becoming increasingly hard to find. We try and stock as many interesting Confederate notes as we can as we have seen interest in this fascinating area of collecting explode in recent years.
#110341: R.M.T. Hunter at left, young girl at right. Uncancelled and scarce as such.

#207508: Indian Family. Beautiful orange and black note. quite scarce. Miniscule split at the top of the center fold. Virtually invisible if we didn't mention it. A great looking note.

#110354: Vignette of South Striking Down the Union. A very rare engraving error as this design was not intended to be an 1861 issue but rather an 1862. A very seldom offered rarity.
#110338: Alexander Stephens, Vice President of the Confederacy. Cut Cancelled.
#140103: An outstanding grade for this Confederate green and black rarity. It also has a very nice gutter fold error diagonal at the right.
#207465: Without a doubt the nicest example of this scarce issue that we have ever offered. T-17 is scarce in any grade. A truly Uncirculated example is absurd to even think about, yet here it is. Vignette of Ceres seated between Commerce and Navigation. Simply a treasure that the lucky Confederate collector who adds this to his/her collection will cherish for many years to come.
#108136: Alexander Stephens ctr. Super green tints. Uncancelled and very scarce as such.
#110347: Five Females. Uncancelled. Very scarce and very nearly making the VF level.
