    This Civil War note shows a southern soldier killing a northener as he crushes an eagle under his boot.

    Actually the Centurian Soldier is suppose to represent the CSA ( south) and the woman is suppose to represent Lady Liberty the USA (north) and the Eagle a symbol of defience.

    Yes ,the engraving is good but like most CSA notes the paper is very thin almost like cloth.
    The CSA purchaced high grade paper from England later in the war and blockade runners delivered some shipments of watermarked paper (CSA).
    The North would conficate this high grade paper when the ships were caught,some of this paper was actually used to print US Fractional Currency & can be identified by hold note up to light & seeing partial CSA watermarks.These notes are sought after & command a high premium.

    Hello Connor1...

    How are you?
    I am sorry to have to be the one to correct your statement but this is not a CSA note. All CSA notes say "Confederate States of America" on the note.
    It is classified as an Obsolete Note known as the South Strikes Down the North.

    In AU it runs for ~ $85-90.00 USD
    So I would think that an CHCU example would go $110to $135 maybe a little more at best.

    Here is the reverse of the note.

    Nice Obsolete, I like it alot.

    Hi Rickie,
    Thanks for correcting me I didn't know that.Nice reverse picture of the Obsolete note.
    I paid $40 for it 10 years ago,I have a few obsoletes mostly Am. Bank Note Co. some signed & some are remainders.The engraving is nice & some intresting vignettes.
    The Am.Bank Note Co made sets of vignettes in the 80s,I have 6 complete sets in proof condition.
    Thank for the info on Confederate Notes

    I only heard of it being used on US fractional notes.Due to the small size of the fractional only partial CSA watermark can be seen.

    Hi, I don't have the note handy it is in my safety deposit box,I take pics before putting them away. The vignette on the left side is of an eagle with it's chicks,I ran it through Adobe Elements & sharpened it a bit but it's in a plastic sleve ,a bit blurry.Check the threads another pic of the reverse ,maybe he could take a closeup for you.
