    Description

    Bright and Colorful $50 Montgomery

    Military Endorsement "Thomas K. Jackson Capt. CSA" T4 $50 1861 PF-2 Cr. 4 PMG About Uncirculated 53.
    The $50 denomination was part of both the four and two subject sheet arrangements that were printed by National Bank Note Company in March and April, 1861. This note, with serial number 923, was part of the second shipment of 1,000 sheets that escaped confiscation by federal authorities by the narrowest of margins while being shipped out of New York around April 22-24, 1861. It incorporates a vignette titled Slaves Hoeing Cotton that appeared on several antebellum Southern bank notes. It is one of fewer than 200 examples known to exist and has an issue endorsement of Capt. Thomas K. Jackson, who was serving at the time of this endorsement (July 5, 1861) under General Wise's command at Lynchburg, VA. PMG mentions minor repairs that are extremely difficult to detect through the holder and have minimal, if any, impact on this attractive note's desirability.
