    Perfectly Original Type 31

    T31 $5 1861 Cr. 244 PCGS Extremely Fine 40PPQ.
    Printed by Southern Bank Note Company (in fact, the New Orleans branch of the ABNCo), only 58,860 of these notes were issued between November 13, 1861 and May 15, 1862 before production was halted due to the surrender of New Orleans to a Union naval task force at the end of April, 1862. The note incorporates all pre-war vignettes and is elegantly engraved with the bright orange 5-FIVE-5 protector showing no signs of toning or oxidation. Premium quality notes such as this attract strong collector interest and are snapped up when they become available. This note is a full fifteen points higher than the highest grade we had previously offered. It is refreshingly free of any condition distractions. This note will have a significant positive impact on the CSA collection lucky enough to add it.
