    T31 $5 1861 Cr. 244.
    The T31 $5 Southern Banknote Company note is tremendously undervalued in high grades. The denomination was a workhorse in circulation, and many notes became worn, were cancelled or redeemed for subsequent issues. Beautifully engraved with five females at the top center. At the left is Navigation and the right end is a statue of Washington. Vermillion protector and large 5 dies flanking the bottom. PCGS graded Very Fine 30PPQ. Mr. Hilton acquired this note in an Early American History auction for $1897 in April 2000. This is one of the higher-grade examples we have handled. The finest, the Noble specimen, was an exceptional PCGS About New 53PPQ that realized $7050 in January 2014. Well margined and bright, with exceptional eye appeal. This will class itself into any significant Confederate typeset.
