We Buy and Sell all Confederate Currency.
When the Confederacy seceded from the Union in 1861, it immediately began issuing paper currency. The Confederacy struck no coinage, so paper money was the staple of everyday commerce.
Between 1861 and 1865, the Confederate States of America issued over 100 varieties of currency, some very rare, others very affordable. All are colorful and historically important, and feature vignettes of Confederate heroes, officials and buildings. You can find notes portraying Jefferson Davis, Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, and the Confederate capitol of Richmond.
Confederate paper money is very collectible in today’s market especially if the money is rare and/or in perfect condition. However, a lot of Confederate money we see is actually fake. Confederate money has been counterfeited and reproduced for more than a century. The good news is that there are still lots of rare and valuable confederate paper money available and waiting to be found.A few key items on the money might help you figure out if you hold a real piece of Civil War history. Only after that can you truly determine the value of the note.
