These Confederate bills were folded up in a small wooden jewelry box with a brooch in it that my Great Great Grandfather Augustus gave to his fiancee as an engagement present. From what I was told, the bills were the change from his purchase of the brooch. I have the brooch somewhere in my house, I seem to have misplaced it...which is giving me a heart attack

    Oh I know mine are real. They had been folded up in the brooch box since the 1800s, Nana carried it with her everyday until 2003 when she gave it to me. I probably shouldn't have unfolded them, they're so brittle I probably damaged them more. I'll look into the $2.00. Thanks AR8Jason!
