September 2nd, 1861 Richmond $10 Red Confederate Bill Value
Description: The first thing many people notice about these notes is the red overprinted “X”‘s on either side of the bill. These were actually added to the notes as an added layer of security to deter counterfeiters at the time. At the center of the bill is a standing woman with clothes on standing next to an anchor. The bottom right corner of the bill is a portrait of CG Memminger and to the left is HMT Hunter. If you turn the bill around you shouldn’t see anything. Something there are contemporary stamps on these bills that can negatively or positively impact its value.
Value: The value of most ten dollar confederate bills is based upon serial number and condition. Most will be worth $70 but we’ve paid over $200 for pristine notes.
