Well, that depends. What would you like to know @Brandon3545?
Nice stuff. Is that a relative?
Unfortunately, your notes are relatively common for the time period. The Confederate note is probably worth about $25 to $35, assuming the note has no major defects. The other notes are pieces of fractional currency. Fractional currency is also known as postal currency, and it was used as a stopgap measure in light of the scarcity of coins during the era. The 3-cent notes are probably worth about $15 to $20, while the 25-cent note is probably worth about $15 or more.
A picture of the Colt would be nice.
I am a gun collector and have ways to find out or put you in the right direction. If it is a Civil War Colt and you can trace it to a soldier who carried it during the war, it could be quite valuable. At least more so than one without provenance.
Welcome to CT.
You may wish to post your other items over in the General Discussion Forum. We have a few firearm enthusiasts and militaria collectors who may be able to help you on this board.
I don't know anything about Colts, but I can say not to bring to Rick Harrison of Pawn Stars.
Since this man was a veteran of the Union army, you may wish to search the records of the Grand Army of the Republic. The GAR was one of the largest veterans groups in the United States after the American Civil War and hosted national events for Union veterans up through 1949.
