My first ever confederate note! NEWP

A very cool note to start a new potential currency collection…

    Yes, that is a great start.
    Lower denomination and earlier (1861-62) notes were extensively circulated. There are many very low grade examples of this note but so few that look like this one.
    1,520,000 T42s were printed and 432,500 of those were "Second Series". Again, very few CU notes survive.

    Collector and dealer in obsolete currency. Always buying all obsolete bank notes and scrip.

    Indeed my research has shown it’s very hard to locate this note in UNC.

    I’m very happy with this pick up!
    I’ve got the book by Fricke coming in the mail now. 👍

    Congratulations on your first CSA note Terry. I kinda like the funky margins.

    I've noticed they are hard to find this nice. I had no idea how scarce this note was when I got it.

    Definitely glad I got it!
