Exceptional VF/XF Rare Confederate T-7 July of 1861, One hundred dollar note
Here is a Beautifully Eye-Appealing & Uncommon Confederate T-7 One Hundred DollarNote !An early note dated July 25th, 1861, there were only 37,155 of these issued! In his book, Collecting Confederate Paper Money, Pierre Fricke noted; “T-7s are harder to find than T-5s and T-6s in higher grade. Because they did not bear interest they circulated extensively.” That said, this particular note will easily grade a solid VF and I actually think it may grade more towards VF-XF. There are no holes, pinholes, tears, or areas of discoloration. The print has not faded and all text and engraving is still nice and dark with good contrast. The note has but two full fold lines, one centered vertically, and one centered horizontally. There is also a short diagonal fold line at the very lower left corner, and that’s it, no more fold lines anywhere. The two main lines though seen fairly easily from the reverse are barely noticed on the front. This is a C plate note on thin paper, with the word “For” handwritten in the lower right corner. Though both signatures show well from both front and back, neither has cut thru the paper. Serial number of 21,778 is handwritten on both sides of center vignette in red. Overall, this is Just a Wonderful & Rare Confederate T-7 Hundred Note with Superb Eye Appeal. If you are interested I have some larger pictures I can email, they just wouldn’t fit on the website. Though Fricke shows the price of these in Choice Collector Grading as $2700 in VF and $3000 in VF-XF, this one is priced much nicer!

The note is numbered 67745, and shows modest to average wear. Though the lower left corner appears clipped, it is actually there and could be carefully unfolded. The colors front and back are still nicely vivid for a circulated note. A Nice Displaying Late War Confederate $10 Note !
VF/XF Confederate T-30 September 2, 1861 Ten Dollar Note
Here is a VF/XF September 2, 1861, Confederate $10 Note !
It’s really a very pretty example with excellent color and detail.
Four or five vertical folds evident from the reverse, but barely
show at all from the front. One corner fold visible from the
back and two tiny pinholes, but the margins are excellent. Hand
signed, with serials in red ink. Vignette at center depicts the
“Sweet potato dinner” Revolutionary War General Francis
Marion offered a British Officer. Vignette at lower left is R.M.T.
Hunter, Confederate Secretary of State. Much better in person
than my poor scans. Email and I can send you a bigger image.
