    T12 $5 1861 PF-1 Cr. 47 PCGS Fine 15.
    Jules Manouvrier, a New Orleans lithographer, printed one type each of $5s and $10s for the Confederate central government as well as a number of other notes for other clients. His association with the Confederate Department of Treasury was short lived as a result of shoddy shipping practices. A shipment of $10s was intercepted by thieves who attempted to apply false signatures and place the notes into circulation. While this was quickly detected and stopped, the $10s were withdrawn from circulation (none are known today) and Manouvrier's contract was cancelled. Consequently, only 15,556 $5s were issued. The note is unique for early Confederate notes on two counts- it has no vignettes, but does have a back design. While T12s are available, this type is considered one of the keys to completing a type set and has one of the most interesting stories of any Confederate type note. This example has spent time in circulation. It has two hammer cancels, but still presents a pleasant appearance. Some minor rust stains are seen.
