    Interesting. Is that date 1868 or 1863? If it's 1868 (post civil war) then I'm stuck..... Looking forward to expert input.. Thanks for posting.

    Looked again...I figure it had to be 1863 but it REALLY looked like 1868 ....must be the "closed 3 " variety :)

    Not a whole lot out there on the net so any expert input would be great! RJ

    In general, Sutler scrip, such as this is rare and well collected. Also, in general, Southern sutlers are rarer and pricier than their Northern counterparts. Your note looks 100% genuine, but is not quite as nice as the Heritage example. Based on the Heritage price, which I believe is fair retail, this one should be worth $1000, give or take a bit.

    Sutlers were private merchants who followed regiments during the Civil War and sold the soldiers both necessities and luxury items, often second quality and/or at premium prices. Some issued metallic tokens, others paper scrip.
