    New Military Endorsement - Capt. Thomas K. Jackson

    T4 $50 1861 Cr 4.
    Though there are approximately 180 T4 $50 Montgomery notes known, high-grade and appealing examples such as this should always be coveted. The lowest denomination from the four-note series made it more practical to actually circulate and not merely be an interest bearing instrument like a $1000 or $500 note. This serial number 888 should excite serial number buffs and is from the second printing of 999 additional notes that barely made it from New York harbor to enter commerce. The National Banknote Company design used is the most "Southern" of the four layouts, and the field hands vignette at center is of course evocative of $100 hoer notes issued in 1862. Like the other Montgomery notes, a lovely suite of green tinting and intricate security devices creates a gorgeous currency note. Fully issued with the normal face signatures of Clitherall and Elmore. The back is endorsed "Issued/July 16, 1861/Tho. K. Jackson/Capt. CSA."
    This note has a shorter sales history, part of Neil Chiappa's collection before being purchased by Mr. Hilton for $25,000. It served as the plate note in Grover Criswell's final edition of Confederate Paper Money in 1996.
    As to the note itself, PCGS grades it Extremely Fine 45PPQ. This note is well inked on bright paper and faces up very well.
