Confederate States 50¢ Note
Printed Date "April 6th, 1863."
The only fractional note issued by the Confederate government (a piece of money with a face value less than a dollar) was this fifty-cent specimen. Most of the South's fractional currencies were produced by the states, not by the central government. In addition to larger denominations, North Carolina's government issued its own supply of paper coins, ranging in face value from five cents to seventy-five cents.
