    This doesn't look like a confederate bill, it looks more like a note or bond. It has nothing on the back. It says Twelve months after date Confederate States of America - No 297 will pay the bearer No 297 One Thousand Dollars with interest at 10 cents pr day.
    Montgomery, the hand written date looks like May, 28, 1861
    Signed by: Alex B. Glitheratt ? Register and Ed Elmorey Treasuer. The name spelling is kind of hard to distinguish.

    Is this real, what is it, is it a good find? Value?

      Is the paper brittle or is it stiff andwrinkled?
    2. TomR TomR, 13 years ago
      It's not brittle at all, I can hold it at one end and it will have a slight bend. It is wavy. The paper almost looks like an oil soak finish if you know what I mean>
    3. VikingFan82 VikingFan82, 13 years ago
      I know exactly what you mean, that usually means its a reproduction. Look real close, does it say reproduction or copy anywhere?
    4. TomR TomR, 13 years ago
      No I don't see that on it, the very bottom reads receivable in payment of all dues except export duties. But looking at it with a magnifying glass the the discoloration across the top and some of the print quality comes into question.
    5. VikingFan82 VikingFan82, 13 years ago
      So it's not an intentional reproduction (from souvenir shops ex.) Here is a site that I hope will be of some help:
    6. TomR TomR, 13 years ago
      Thanks, that helped. I found the serial number and it looks like a worthless reproduction. Thanks goodness I through it into a bundle as an add on so I'm not out much. I hate learning lessons the hard way. :(
    7. VikingFan82 VikingFan82, 13 years ago
      Yeah I hate when that happens. For the future, money that old almost has a tattered cloth feel to it. I have a few Civil War repros that I bought (knowingly) at a gift shop and they are exactly how you described.
    8. TomR TomR, 13 years ago
      Thanks, I appreciate it.

      You're welcome.

    13. flyrr100, 13 years ago
      I have the exact bill. It's part of a repo set I bought at a gift shop at Houston Airport back in the 1980s. Fun to have.
    14. NikkiS1369, 4 years ago
      I have 3/4 of the exact same thing. Back is blank. U can tell by the material that it's super old. 1,000 dollars, 10 cents a day interest and check no 297 may 28th 1861 back Is blank. I'm just missing the left 1/4

      I have approximately 30 Confederate bills in my collection, intrigued by the 1000 bill. I have 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500 and the elusive 1000 bills.
      Anyone shed any light on them please?
