Civil War Items - part 2

This is one of my favorites in my currency collection.
This is an original COUNTERFEIT confederate
twenty dollar note issued Sept 2nd 1861. Serial number
117311 hand numbered in red ink, The back of this note
is blank.


  1. That is a nice piece! Have you read "Stealing Lincoln's Body" ? It is a historical narrative of the gents who started the secret service to fight counterfeiters and how they ended up protecting Lincoln's body. Very good read.
