Here is a nice original $1.00 bank note from the "THE CITY OF PORTSMOUTH" of the state of Virginia. This one was printed for the amount of one dollar. It was issued from Portsmouth, Virginia on October 7th 1861 and is so printed on the right hand side of the note. This is right in the thick of the Civil War in Virginia. It is correctly hand signed and numbered in ink. In the middle of the bill it has the beautiful state seal of the state of Virginia. The state seal depicts the Goddess Virtus defeating Tyranny. Above the image it reads "SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS" which translates to "Thus Unto Tyrants". These notes are printed on the front side and you can see where they reused the City of Portsmouth bond paper. The note is in nice circulated condition and is 100% authentic in all regards. This note measures approximately 6 inches by 2-7/8ths inches in overall size. It comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation.
