The Confederacy first issued denominations in the Confederate dollar in 1861. Lacking a central mint like the US Mint of the Union, most of the paper notes issued in the Confederate dollar were hastily produced and released into circulation. Though the designs on the notes were often well thought out and distinctive, the notes were typically cut by hand, signed by hand, and given a serial number that was written in by hand as well. After the conclusion of the war, Confederate dollars were rendered useless when the Union refused to recognized Confederate debts accumulated during the war. The notes were essentially worth little more than the paper the denominations were printed on.
