Click on an image to enlarge
This is a very tough to find note! It is an attractive authentic 1871 25 Cent note form the Selma, Marion and Memphis Railroad. What makes this note so special is who the President of the Railroad was at the time. In the lower right hand corner it has the printed signature of "N.B. Forrest", that's right it is Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest. It is not personally signed by Forrest but is a clear printed signature. It has the printed numbers which is correct for this style of note. This one has the serial number of 167. On each side of the note it has the images of blacks carrying cotton. These are very similar to the ones that you see on Civil War Confederate and smaller bank notes. The center of the note has the Railroad name and the March 1st 1871 date as well as the place of issuance of Marion, Alabama. It has the pretty green ink overprinting that was added to help prevent counterfeiting. On the back of the note it has the beautiful green ink print with the boll of cotton in the center with "25 CENTS" on each side. This one has attractive color and a fine look. The note is in beautiful un-circulated condition and comes in an acid free holder for preservation and display. These are very tough to find so don't miss this one.
