VF/XF Confederate T-30 September 2, 1861 Ten Dollar Note
Here is a VF/XF September 2, 1861, Confederate $10 Note !
It’s really a very pretty example with excellent color and detail.
Four or five vertical folds evident from the reverse, but barely
show at all from the front. One corner fold visible from the
back and two tiny pinholes, but the margins are excellent. Hand
signed, with serials in red ink. Vignette at center depicts the
“Sweet potato dinner” Revolutionary War General Francis
Marion offered a British Officer. Vignette at lower left is R.M.T.
Hunter, Confederate Secretary of State. Much better in person
than my poor scans. Email and I can send you a bigger image.

Fine 1862 Confederate T-40 $100 Note w/Steam Train Vignette
Here is a Fine Confederate T-40 $100 Note ! This one was issued October 2nd, 1862, and has the center vignette of a steam locomotive pulling several passenger cars. In the lower left is a vignette of a lady carrying a basket on her head. The note is hand signed and numbered and the serial of this one is 58272. The clarity is still good for a circulated note. The reverse shows fold marks normal for a circulated note, and interest paid twice. One interest mark is handwritten in ink stating, “Interest paid to Jan. 1, 63” and the other is stamped, “Interest paid to 1 January 1864.” Just a Nice Displaying 1862 Confederate $100 Note !
Very Uncommon 1862 Dated, "Fort Smith City, Arkansas," Fifty Cent Merchant Note - Also Redeemable in Fayetteville, Arkansas; Van Buren, Arkansas; Fort Gibson, Indian Territory; Sherman, Texas; Denton, Texas; and of course, Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Here is a Quite Uncommon January 9th, 1862, Fort Smith City, Arkansas, Fifty-Cent Scrip Note ! I say “Uncommon” because you frequently see Civil War Period notes from most of the other Southern States, or Towns, but Arkansas examples are rare. This one is a merchant note that was good at Stirman & Dickson’s in Fayetteville, Arkansas, White & Hanley’s in Van Buren, Arkansas, F.H. Nash’s at Fort Gibson, Indian Territory, Alexander & Allen in Sherman, Texas, J. M. Smoot in Denton, Texas, & Wm. Mayers, the issuer in Fort Smith. It would seem that all these men had business dealings together, for the note to be redeemable in any one of these places. It measures about six inches wide by 2.75 inches tall, and is in average worn condition. I see about half a dozen small pinholes, but nothing large, and it is quite limber. It is hand signed by Wm. Mayers, the man who issued it in Fort Smith, and also hand serial numbered. I have seen these notes in VG to F condition bring $250, but this one is priced for the condition.

Fine/Very Fine Confederate T-68 Ten Dollar Note w/Nice Red Color
Here is a Fine Confederate T-68 $10 Note ! It is the pattern dated February 17th, 1864, and this is the “red” variety. The center vignette depicts an artillery piece limbered up and being driven. The note is numbered 67745, and shows modest to average wear. Though the lower left corner appears clipped, it is actually there and could be carefully unfolded. The colors front and back are still nicely vivid for a circulated note. A Nice Displaying Late War Confederate $10 Note !
