    Description

    Set of Chemicograph Backs Intended for Confederate Currency.
    This set of notes consists of six Chemicographic backs with designs that were intended for the 1864 issues of $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, and $500. Back plates with these designs were ordered by the Confederate Treasury from S. Straker & Sons of London. The plates were made and shipped from London in early January 1864, only to disappear. Several more shipments were made, but none got through the Union blockade. Examples of the plates were found 75 years later and these prints were made from these plates. Then the plates were donated to the Smithsonian Institution. Three information slips are included with the six "notes." You don't see these like you use to. Choice Crisp Uncirculated. (Total: 6 notes)
