    Charming T3 $100 PCGS Very Fine 35PPQ

    T3 $100 1861 PF-2 Cr. 3.
    A charming PCGS Very Fine 35PPQ $100 from the second printing which barely escaped seizure by federal agents at the harbor in New York City before being shipped to the Confederacy. It is an attractive note with ideal color, not a trace of soiling, and no apologies will ever be needed for this piece. It has earned the PPQ grade modifier due to its originality. It also faces up at a higher grade. It has a penned issued endorsement on the back reading, "Issued May 23d 1861 / John T. Shaaff / Capt. Subs(istence) Dept. / CSA." Captain Shaaff dated it almost two full months before the Confederate victory at the First Battle of Manassas. The last T3 that we auctioned was in April 2018. That PCGS 40 note with comments on the third party holder realized $14,400. Look for the current offering to eclipse that figure.
