    Brightly Inked $1,000 Montgomery

    T1 $1,000 1861 PF-1 Cr. 1 CC.
    A sharply printed example of this well collected denomination. The Confederate States T1 $1000 Montgomery Issue note is an iconic rarity in the American paper money canon. This note once resided in the collection of the Honorable William H. Kelly. The richness of the National Bank Note Company engraved black printing is amplified by the green tinted cycloidal guilloche configurations created by Cyrus Durand's patented spiral lathe machines. The note is framed around in color, the tint patent date is in the bottom left and imprint in the bottom right. A repeating pattern of denominations, textual and numerical, is across the center. Titles, denomination, MONTGOMERY, and the interest statement, "with interest at Ten Cents per day" are above the green-shaded signature block. The counters in the top corners are composed of 12 overlapping ovals, each with an outlined arcing ONE THOUSAND above 1000. The left counter has "M" in the center and the right, "1000." Portraits are below the counters in the side panels: John C. Calhoun is at left, and Andrew Jackson is at right. Hand dated except for the engraved "18" and lines for two signatures stacked. The signatures of Alexander B. Clitherall as register and E.C. Elmore as treasurer are very sharp. Plate letter A, and machine numeral 322. Its only detriment being the cancellation repairs which have been expertly executed. PCGS Very Fine 30.
