The date is hand printed with the hand signed serial number and signatures. The Central Bank of Virginia was authorized as a free bank in 1851. In 1860 it began issuing unregistered notes, a common practice among Virginia's free banks. In order to have paper for needed smaller denomination notes after the start of the war, the bank decided to sacrifice uncut sheets of larger denomination notes to provide the paper required to print these new notes. In order to squeeze out as many notes as possible, the new notes were a much smaller format design. This one is printed on paper that had already been used in another effort to save money on printing costs. The note measures 5-1/2 inches by 2 inches in overall size. It comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation.
