1862 60-cent State Of Virginia Note With Sn#?4434 In Very Good (vg) Condition:
This note is an 1862 Sixty-cent State of Virginia, City of Richmond note printed for use during the Civil War. The note has SN#?4434 in Very Good (VG) condition. Inventory #01732. Features central vignette of a dog guarding a safe. The Reverse of the note reveals that the bank used unissued, uncut sheets of Confederate currency to print these much-needed coin currency. The notes were printed on uncut sheets of $5 and $10 from various local banks, such as the Rappahannock Bank at Tappahannock, VA. The notes were hand-signed and hand-numbered by N. Reese, for the president of the City of Richmond. There was an acute shortage of coinage and the Confederacy did not issue any coinage for circulation. So cities like Richmond issued small change notesin odd denominations for use in daily transactions. The lack of quality banknote paper led to the use of the backs of unissed sheets of currency from various pre-war Virginia banks. It is a nice piece of Civil War history. I combine shipping for multiple items during same sale. I have a No-Questions-Asked return policy if the note is returned in original condition within 14 days of receipt.
