Click on an image to enlarge

Here is an original uncut sheet of four Civil War New Orleans bank notes. These notes are true works of art as much as they are a bank note. This is a group of 4 original $5.00 notes from the Citizens Bank of Louisiana in New Orleans, Louisiana. These were never issued as you can tell by the blanks where the names and signatures would have gone. The notes display superbly and was never issued and it is from the pre-Civil War era as they were not printed after the Civil War. It has the scene Lady Liberty leaning against the Union shield in the center. If you notice down in the bottom center of the note it has the "NEW ORLEANS” location of the bank. In the center of the note at the bottom it has the Louisiana state seal that depicts the mother pelican feeding her young. The back of the note has the beautiful blue ink tones with the large trio of "5”'s with the "CITIZENS’ BANK OF LOUISIANA” above and below. You can tell that these notes were crafted like a work of art and not just printed as were so many of the pieces of the day. The overall size of each note measures 7-1/8th inches by 3-1/8th inches in size. The sheet itself measures 13 inches by 7-1/2 inches in overall size. It is in exceptional condition. This one is ready to frame up on your wall. What a fantastic display piece!
