Click on an image to enlarge

This is a very cool piece of Confederate currency! It is an original 1862 dated $2.00 note issued by the firm of G.W. Holt of New Orleans. Holt ran a coffee house and apparently issued more notes than he could possibly redeem. He is mentioned in New Orleans newspaper articles as having been brought into court on at least two occasions after the city's capture because he could not redeem notes presented for redemption. He appears after the war in Mobile, AL, living with a relative. In the center of the note it has the iconic Female Riding Deer vignette as used on the Confederate counterfeit type. This one has the nice orange red ink "TWO DOLLARS" printed on the note. The note is correctly hand signed and numbered. It also has the printed date of issuance of January 1st 1862. It is in well circulated condition and comes in an acid free holder for display and preservation. This is a good looking piece of currency from one of the Civil War businesses of New Orleans.
