  4. Didn't know this. Thanks for following me. I've out you on my blog roll.
    Perhaps you can help me with a mystery I've been trying to clear up for some years now. Was there ever an issue of Arizona Confederate currency? I can't find any reference to it in the few sources available to me on this side of the pond, but when I was in Arizona I heard several mentions of it. I've written about it here:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    1. Hello Sean,
      I've never seen any confederate currency from Arizona. I'll look into it with some of the resources that I have available to me.
