September 3rd, 1861 Richmond $50 Confederate Bill Value
Description: All of these 1861 $50 Confederate currency bills were printed with black and green ink. This was also when the printers started adding red security fibers to deter counterfeiting. At the center of every bill, you’ll see two women seated who represent Industry and Agriculture. On the right between two 50’s is a portrait of President George Washington. And to the left is a woman standing in flowing clothes holding a sword and a balance scale.
Value: The value of most fifty dollar confederate bills is based upon serial number and condition. This specific type is incredibly rare regardless of condition. Most will be worth over $500 but we’ve paid over $850 for pristine notes.
