    CT40 $100 1862.
    PMG has identified this note as a contemporary counterfeit, however we are not in agreement. There are two varieties of counterfeits for these notes listed in Tremmel's A Guide Book of Counterfeit Confederate Currency. Among the diagnostics for the first variety are two missing trainmen. Although the figures are not as easily seen on this example as on some notes, they are indeed present. The diagnostic for the second variety is that the three windows in the lower right-hand wing of the building that is behind the milkmaid are visible, which does not appear to be the case with this example. The information recorded in the Register of the Confederate Debt indicates that the signers of this piece, W.B. Walston and T.W. Bell, are correct for this serial number range. We will leave it to the bidders to make their own assessment as to whether or not this note is a contemporary counterfeit and bid accordingly. "Issued" has been handwritten on the back in black ink and a Charleston issue stamp dated Sep 9 1862 is seen to the right. PMG Fine 12 Net, with ink burn cited as the reason for the net grade. The note has a nice appearance for the grade.
