North Carolina State Issue, 1861
NC 25¢ Note
Dated "Oct. 1st, 1861."
Since the South had no national coinage on which to rely, North Carolina's General Assembly approved in 1861 this state's printing of fractional currencies, notes with a face value of less than one dollar. During the war the state issued "paper coins" ranging from five cents to seventy-five cents.
