    Shame about the condition. CSA Notes with trains tend to bring hunger amounts as trains are highly sought after. This one has a hand written serial number.

    Yes they are but there’s lots more. First I’d like to see if @scottishmoney can answer me about the registers signature.

    Thank you. No blood, just the way CSA paper money stains.

    Who is R King? I'm a noob when it comes to US history having only moved to the US from Australia 5 years ago.

    Beautiful note Btw. I've yet to get a genuine note, the only ones I've come across til now are 'copies' 'forgeries' and tourist trap crap

    That’s but that bill is not mine. Mine is the one on the first page so please look at that and read the history. It’s fascinating. R. King was the a register for the Richmond, VA area where this note was from in February of 1864.

    CSA Notes have been reproduced so you must be careful when purchasing them. All the CSA Notes in this thread are the genuine article.

    @Southernman189 I bought that bill that I mentioned. I probably get it on Thursday. It has great potential.

    @scottishmoney Any word on my earlier question about the registers signature? I have some other information on your bill that I think you’ll find interesting.

    @scottishmoney Ok, here you go. I received the PM but wanted to point out your bill in this thread for all to see and understand.

    First, nothing significant about R King except his signature. If you look at the G in his last name it goes off of the bill. But look at the top of the bill, above the N in CONFEDERATE. There are a few lines that are part of the design but upon closer inspection you can see line coming from the top of the bill. That line crosses the black line that frames the bill on all 4 sides. It’s also a different ink and a wee bit thicker. That is the G from King from the bill above it. His signature goes from the top note to the note under it as they were printed on uncut sheets much like today’s paper money.

    Next, your CSA Note is a $100.00 note. It is listed as a T-65 (Grover Criswell Number) and a Cr490 (The Criswell Variety Number). The Fricke Variety Number is PF1. That’s how to identify the notes.

    In the center is Lucy Pickens, (as you stated), the wife of the governor of South Carolina during the Civil War, two soldiers on left side, and Confederate cabinet member George W. Randolph on the bottom right. A total of 929,200 total issued.

    It was printed by Keatinge and Ball in Columbia, SC. It is dated February 17th 1864. Serial #71590 is stamped twice in black. Looks to be in FINE+ condition.

    A nice looking note with good eye appeal. Dark details. Great color. Not fully framed as the bill was trimmed by hand right on the line or just over the line. The line is framed correctly on the right side.

    Elaborately written signatures are present. The paper looks fairly crisp with some staining, which is most notable on the reverse. I can’t see any noticeable folds, tears, or ink erosion. I’m not seeing any hard evidence of circulation, nor can I see pinholes.

    A genuine $100 note that actually circulated, and still came out of the Civil War with nice eye appeal. It’s a great piece to add to any collection.

    I read the history and all, first thing I did and I noticed the signature on the note. Would be great to prove the signature on that.

    I was asking about who King is as it was mentioned, so I thought it was significant in the discussion.

    King, it’s not him but the way he signs his name. The tail on the G is on the bill below his name. I detailed the information in an above post.

    I just purchased another great CSA Note and took possession of it today. I’ll be posting it soon in a new thread. I’m excited about this note as it’s a new discovery.
