T1 Thousand 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 great color. It boasts a three digit serial number, 381. The margins are exceptionally broad and far away from being printed design. There is no true wear observed and the folds are extremely difficult to detect, even under professional grading lights.

This example has had a few punched out cancellations, which fortunately, have not been repaired or restored. In addition, there are a couple of cross cut cancellations which are honestly almost invisible. PCGS makes mention of an edge tear at the bottom left of center which occurred at the time of the cancellation and should not result in an apparent grade.

The signature of Elmore remains quite bold. He shot a newspaper editor who accused him of embezzling funds from the Confederate treasury. The editor died immediately adds did this story. There is, however, accounting in central Alabama named in his honor.

The signature of Witherall is likewise bold, in his position as register of the Confederate treasury.
