Confederate States of America Depository Receipt from Charleston Dated 1864
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a neat and very underappreciated piece of Confederate banking history! This is what is known as an "Interim Depository Receipt.". When the Confederate Government took in money in old currency this is the sheet of paper they gave the depositor to guarantee that the old money would be valued as much as the new money that they would be receiving. This piece measures 6-1/2 inches by 4 inches in overall size. It is on pre-printed paper with the blanks nicely filled in using fine brown ink. At the top it states that it was from the Confederate States of America and is from the Assistant Treasurer's Office in Charleston, South Carolina. It is hand dated in ink from March 18th 1864. It states that the South Western Railroad Bank and they were depositing $100. The printing states that new money will be issued "...to him under the "Act to reduce the Currency, and to authorize a new issue of Notes and Bonds." What a great piece of history!
