    XXI $20 Female Riding Deer Bogus Note. The Female Riding Deer (FRD) fantasy or bogus note was thought for years to be an official Confederate issue, and in fact saw widespread circulation. No Confederate collection is complete without an example. The central vignette is actually of the Roman goddess Diana. Recent evidence discussed in Counterfeit Currency of the Confederate States of America by George R. Tremmel points to Samuel Upham as the culprit. This mid-grade example has printed signatures, while the hand-written serial numbers are still legible. Very Fine.
