Most of North Carolina's currency during the war was produced by
firms outside the state. This 1861 two-dollar note was printed by
the firm of F.W. Bornemann in Charleston, South Carolina. Notice
the serial number and serial letter (C) at the top-left portion of
this currency. These are the two most important characteristics
for identifying a piece of paper money. The letter records a
note's precise location on its original multi-image printing plate.
