Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a neat original pre-Civil War note. This is a $5.00 note for the Bank of Virginia in Richmond. It is hand dated in ink from January 11th 1857. The bank was originally authorized in 1804 and ultimately grew to a network of nine branches in addition to the parent bank in Richmond. This one was for the Norfolk branch and it is so written in ink. The bank did not survive the end of the Civil War, with the bank's facilities in Richmond being destroyed during the city's capture in 1865. The note has the farming maiden in the center. The note measures 7 inches by 3 inches in size. It is in lightly circulated condition and comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation.
