This is a great framed set of items! These are honoring Judah P. Benjamin from the Confederate Cabinet. Benjamin was from Louisiana and held many important positions in the Confederate Government. At different times during the Civil War he served the Confederacy as Attorney General, Secretary of War and Secretary of State. At the end of the Civil War he fled to England and practiced law rather than live under U.S. rule. In the top of the frame, it has a document in Benjamin's hand that is dated from 1840. The document is written in French and has his clear signature at the bottom. In the center of the frame it has an original 1864 issue of the $2.00 bill. Along the top of the note it has the Richmond Virginia, location of issuance and the printed date of issuance of February 17th 1864. On the right hand side it has the classic image of Judah P. Benjamin. This is the version listed as figure T-70 in Criswell's Confederate Currency book. It is nicely and correctly hand signed and numbered in old ink. It is in nice circulated condition. The autograph is beautifully framed and matted in a wooden frame that measures 17 inches by 12-1/2 inches in overall size. It also has a printed biography of his service. The document that the autograph is on measures 7-3/4ths inches by 3-3/4ths inches in the matting. It is ready to hang on the wall of your relic room.
