Click on an image to enlarge
Here is one that is seldom seen. This is an original $5.00 bank note from Howardsville, Virginia. This one was issued by the Bank of Howardsville. These were used from 1856 until 1861. The Bank of Howardsville was authorized by the General Assembly in 1856. It originally operated as a free bank until just before the beginning of the Civil War when it began issuing unregistered notes. The bank's ultimate fate is somewhat unclear, but it was very likely a casualty of the war. This one is the unregistered version that issued just weeks before the commencement of hostilities. Although the two designs are identical in most respects, this unregistered issue has a the green "FIVE" protector overprints to help prevent counterfeiting. This one is hand dated from November 18th 1861. It is very well worn but still displays well.
