    Description

    "CSA" Watermarked Paper - Single Block. PCGS New 62.
    On April 27, 1862 the Confederate blockade runner Bermuda was captured by the USS Mercedita and taken to Philadelphia. Her cargo, which included a shipment of banknote paper bound for the Confederacy, was ordered sold by the Federal Courts. The Treasury Department purchased most of the "CSA" watermarked banknote paper and used it for a number of purposes, including Fractional Currency Specimen Notes of the second and third issues. This example is broadly margined on all sides, bright, and with near perfect centering of the "CSA" watermark. These have routinely been bringing a three figure price in our sales.
