Click on an image to enlarge
Here is an original 1862 dated Confederate States of America $100.00 bill issued from Richmond, Virginia. This is the version with the steam train in the center with the steam ship in the background of the train scene. This is the pattern of note listed in Criswell's currency book as T-39. This is the pattern with the straight steam coming out of the smokestack of the steam train engine. In the lower left hand corner is the image of a milk-maid carrying the milk bucket. This note is correctly hand signed and numbered and is 100% authentic. On the back of the note it has the markings where the Confederate government paid the interest due for the year. This $100 note was issued to the field in Houston, TX on July 16, 1863 by Major and Quarter Master Edward C. Wharton who was serving as the chief of the Clothing & Equipage Bureau in Houston at the time. Wharton survived the war and was paroled at Houston on June 22, 1865. The note also has an IP stamp on the back, associated with use in the Trans-Mississippi Department, paying interest to January 1, 1865. This is the first note that we have handled with his endorsement. This is a nice touch on an already cool Confederate note. This is one very attractive piece of Confederate currency. The note is in attractive very light circulated condition. The piece of Confederate history comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation.
