September 2nd, 1861 Richmond $5 Confederate Blacksmith Bill Value
Description: What makes this old Confederate note so cool is a vignette of a blacksmith on the right-hand side of every bill. Just behind the blacksmith is a small train chugging right along. At the lower-left corner of the bill is a portrait of a boy. These notes have beautiful overprints that can sometimes become oxidized and change from orange to brown color (see image above).
