September 2nd, 1861 Richmond $50 Confederate Jefferson Davis Bill Value
Description: In great condition, these $50 bills can be really beautiful and valuable. However, most that come to us are not in the best of condition. These bills have Jefferson Davis at the center and have green overprints. If your bills don’t look like the one above, it’s likely a reproduction (worth no money). There is no design on the back of these bills, just the front. Red fibers were sometimes added to the paper to make it more difficult to counterfeit at the time.
Value: The value of most fifty dollar confederate bills is based upon serial number and condition. Unless in very high grade, these bills won’t be worth very much money. Most will be worth $50 but we’ve paid over $150 for pristine notes.
