T3 One hundred dollar 1861, from the Montgomery Alabama issues.
This is the pinnacle of Confederate and southern states notes. It has a long and storied history. Few collectors have had the opportunity to see a genuine example, only the very privileged few have I ever added one to their holdings. This is truly the caliber of the note to catapult anyone's collection from ordinary to museum worthy.
This is wonderfully centered possessing good color. It boasts a three digit serial number, 583.
Note grades PMG VERY FINE 20
