T40 $100 1862 PF-1, Cr. 298/308.
    While the "Diffused Steam" note itself is a fairly common item, the manuscript issuance of Mobile on the back is definitely not common. With assistance from the Trainmen (not comic book characters...yet), we know that 900 sheets were printed and dated October 15, 1862. From there, who exactly issued the notes is up for discussion, as most Confederate Quartermasters would sign their name on the back, however this note simply has an issue date of March 16, 1863. It is believed that a clerk or cashier at the Mobile Savings Bank issued this note almost 146 years ago. Fine, with some small tears at bottom, along with a small missing piece at upper left. Also of note is a possible engravers name of Hollings in the left margin.

    Estimate: $400 - $600.
