Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very interesting piece of history. During the Civil War there were people that would counterfeit money to fool people. Upon 1st look, it is an original Confederate States of America savings bond. But when you look closely you see that the image of Stonewall Jackson is poorly executed compared tot he original design. This is the pattern that is listed as B-C240A in the 2015 updated edition of the Confederate Savings Bond Book by Ball. They tell how these are in this serial number range and have the "J.A. Taylor". It also has the Third Series notation and the original bonds do not have series markings. This one shows how it was copied like the original that was issued on February 23rd 1863 from the Confederate Capitol at Richmond, Virginia and is so marked at the top of the bond. It was issued for the amount of $1,000. The top portion has the likeness of one of the most famous of all the Confederate Generals Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. This bond was made to honor the fallen Confederate Hero. On the lower section of the top it has the image of the paddle-wheel steamer going down the river. It has 7 of the interest coupons remaining at the bottom. There is a slight tear to the paper and it is priced accordingly. It is hardly visible and won't show up when it is framed. What a neat piece!
