Confederate Paper Money Values

Confederate Paper Money Collage1

We’re always adding new additions of old currency to our personal collections. Confederate paper money was printed during the Civil War by the Confederates States of America. These bills were printed during a time of war and at times have poor printing quality. That’s what makes Confederate bills difficult to authenticate at times.

Some of these old Confederate bills can be worth thousands of dollars. It really depends on how many were produced and how many survived until today. Like most paper money, the older your Confederate money is, and the better the condition, the more money it will likely be worth.

Important: Most Confederate paper money people offer us is fake. Fake, or counterfeit, paper money has zero value to us. Please send us a clear photo, front and back, of your old confederate paper money. We will respond within 24 hours with our best offer.

1861 Confederate Currency

The first year the Confederate States printed money was 1861. Confederate paper money was only printed from 1861 to 1864, yet there was a lot of it printed.

Most 1861 Confederate currency is worth decent money which we’ll dive more into with this guide. The later the date on your Confederate bill, chances are it will be worth less money. There are always other factors to take into consideration, like the condition of the bill and serial number.

1862 Confederate Currency

Most confederate bills have handwritten signatures, dates, and serial numbers. Sometimes it’s difficult to see what’s been written.

It’s important to remember a Civil war was happening during the time of printing. Signers and printers couldn’t take their time. This is also why 1862 Confederate bills will have crude prints. Generals and administrators of paper money didn’t have time nor supplies to re-print mistakes or errors on bills.

1863 Confederate Currency

Previous years for Confederate currency look nearly identical to a lot of the 1863 Confederate bills. A lot of the times the only difference will be a colored overprint, date, and signatures. Uncirculated Confederate bills can be worth a lot of money, contact us if you’re interested in selling. 

1864 Confederate Currency

1864 was the final year the Confederate States printed paper money. $500 dollar bills from 1864 are valuable, however, there are a lot of counterfeit examples known. The Confederate States only printed the five hundred dollar bill for two years, 1861 & 1864. Every other 1864 Confederate bill won’t be worth much money, but we still buy them (as long as they’re real).

Do not call us about your Confederate paper money from 1864. Please only text or email us with pictures. This will save both you and myself a lot of time. Without pictures, there is no way to tell if the bills are fake or real. It can sometimes be challenging to authenticate over a photo, so make sure to take as clear photos as you can.

Old Money Prices is very friendly and helpful. She helped determine the value of my currency collection and the best way to go about selling it! She has a large wealth of information regarding $500 bills. They also gave me more money for my $500 bill than I could have got anywhere locally. It was a pleasure dealing with you and will come back to you for any other currency-related sales.
