    Attractive T3 1861 $100 Confederate Note

    T3 $100 1861 PF-2 Cr-3.
    These notes were designed and produced by National Bank Note Co. after it received part of an order awarded to rival ABNCo by the Confederate government in March 1861. In order to expedite deliveries, National used pre-war vignettes exclusively, including the train in the station and America vignettes on this note. They did make some interesting modifications to the America vignette, removing and widening the bars on the shield to "de-federalize" it and removing or fading a number of the stars on the robe to make it appear less "star spangled." This note was part of a second shipment of 1000 two-subject $50-$100 sheets. The order for these sheets had been placed on April 12-13, 1861, and it was shipped on or about April 22-24, 1861. This shipment was almost intercepted by federal authorities on the docks in New York City, but instead it was received in Montgomery, AL on about May 1, 1861. Federal authorities raided the printing plants of both banknote companies on April 25, putting an end to any further shipments from either company. PMG grades this note Very Fine 25 Net, with repairs. The back bears endorsements from A.J. Guirot, Assistant Treasurer-CSA, who issued the note on June 5, 1861, as well as a second endorsement acknowledging interest paid. This note is an attractive example with repairs not readily apparent or distracting. It will make a welcome addition to almost any Confederate collection.
