    Ridgeway, SC- Unknown Issuer 5¢-10¢-25¢-50¢ Sep. 1, 1865 Uncut Sheet PCGS Extremely Fine 45.
    When we first offered this sheet in our 2016 FUN Currency Signature Auction where it crossed the auction block for $2,173.75, your cataloger observed: "If you do not love this sheet then you have no appreciation for Obsolete paper money. This is a small sheet of four denominations from an unknown issuer in Ridgeway, SC, a very small town about halfway between Winnsboro and Columbia, SC. It is dated just a couple of months after the conclusion of the Civil War. That in itself would make this an interesting item. What it is printed on, however, is the really significant thing. The printer used a fully issued Confederate T71 $1 note as the host paper source. This clearly shows what people thought of the value of the Confederate dollar just after the war- essentially it was only worth the paper it was printed on and nothing more." We have never seen anything like it before or since. An amazing piece that belongs in the most advanced Obsoletes, Confederate, or South Carolina collection.
