    Manuscript Endorsement "R(ichard) J. Hill" T41 $100 1862 PF-12 Cr. 317A PMG Choice Uncirculated 63 EPQ.
    As we read the red ink endorsement on the back of the note, we remarked that this is unusual. The endorsement reads, "Interest Paid / March 1st 1863 / R. J. Hill / A(ssitant) Q(uarter) M(aster) CSA." We found on page 336 of Confederate Quartermasters, Commissaries, and Agents, Michael McNeil states there are only two notes known where interest paid on a note was performed by a quartermaster and not by a depositary. In both cases, the quartermaster is R.J. Hill. Both of those notes are in this auction session. Hill served with the 22nd Regiment Alabama Volunteers Deas Brigade at the beginning of the war. Hill was still attached to Deas Brigade when the interest was paid on this $100. Hill later participated in the Atlanta Campaign and he would be paroled at Montgomery on May 10, 1865. Strong embossing is observed on this quality beauty that is almost fully framed with three broad margins.
