September 2nd, 1861 Richmond $5 Soldier Confederate Bill Value
Description: These bills are pretty plain when it comes to the design. At the center of the bill is a portrait of C.G. Memminger. To the right is an armored woman holding a spear while leaning on the number 5. She is also standing on the number FIVE. To the left is an intricate design saying “FIVE DOLLARS” which was put in place to deter counterfeiters. Most bills you come across will be in a similar condition to the note pictured above, however, better condition examples will always bring more money. As long as they’re genuine.
Value: The value of most five dollar confederate bills is based upon serial number and condition. Most will be worth $50 but we’ve paid over $150 for pristine notes.
