Confederate Currency $100 Dollar Montgomery Note CSA T-3
Description: This $100 Confederate bank note shows a railroad train at the station in the center with a standing woman in flowing robes (Columbia) holding a crown of laurels on the left side of the note, 100 over scalloped counters at right. Imprint of National Bank Note Company. 1606 of these $100 Confederate notes were issued, but are still considered very scarce. To many, the $100 Montgomery note is the first in a long line of simply beautiful works of art that served as currency. All of the Montgomery series of notes were printed by the New York Bank Note Company in New York City before the outbreak of hostilities between the North and South. Dated May 16, 1861 and signed by Clitherall and Elmore, this note has a May 20 endorsement on back by Captain R. Williams.
Inscriptions: "Twelve months after date The Confederate States of America will pay to bearer One Hundred Dollars with interest at one cent per day/ Montgomery/ Patented April 23rd 1860/ Receivable in Payment of all Dues Except Export Duties/ National Bank Note Company"
Signed by Alex B. Clitherall as Register and E.C. Elmore as Treasurer.
