The Confederate States of America began issuing coins and paper notes in the Confederate States dollar denomination shortly after secession from the United States. While some of the early notes were interest-bearing notes, the vast majority were issued with the promise of payment upon the conclusion of the war and a peace treaty between the sides.
All of the 1864 $500 Confederate States Notes available here come with plastic currency sleeves and arrive in uncirculated condition. Generally speaking, uncirculated notes have no fold lines and margins that may stray into the central design element. While there is no sign of use in circulation, it is possible for the notes to show minor smudges as a result of handling during the cutting and counting processes before release. Please bear in mind that we cannot guarantee the exact condition of any individual note. If you buy more than one, your notes could vary in exact condition.
Obverse design elements on the 1864 $500 Confederate States Note include two major design elements on either end of the note’s field. To the left side of the note, the Confederate seal is paired with the second national flag of the Confederacy. To the right side of the note, there is an image of Stonewall Jackson.
Reverse features on the 1864 $500 Confederate States Note are nonexistent. The Confederacy did not always issue a design element on the reverse of its notes. The $500 denomination was one of the notes that came with no design element. You may, however, notice some ink bleed-through from the reverse.
