    1864 $100 Counterfeit, CT-65, Cr-492, Choice About Uncirculated. This is a perfect example of this elusive "Havana" counterfeit. It was accepted throughout the Confederacy due to its excellent lithography that paralleled if not surpassed the genuine notes. It was originally listed as genuine in the seminal Bradbeer tome of 1915. Criswell reports that these were produced in Havana and smuggled into Mobile. Some of the tell-tale characteristics of this note are plate letter "D", machine printed serial numbers, written signatures, no space between the standing soldier's body and right elbow, .25 inch narrower in width than the genuine "short" T-65, a more oval portrait of George Randolph, and a lighter blue ink on the back. This is the most popular Confederate counterfeit and deserving of serious consideration.
