North Carolina State Issue, 1862
NC One Hundred-Dollar Note
Written date "Jan. 8th, 1862."
The printing plate for this one-hundred-dollar note was designed and engraved by the firm of J. Manouvrier of New Orleans, Louisiana. This note, issued on January 8, 1862, was part of a $3,000,000 issue authorized by North Carolina's General Assembly a month earlier. See this specimen's reverse (below), which includes portions of coupons. This reveals that this note was also printed on recycled paper, on the backside of unused copies of old bonds that once had been redeemable in the North, in New York City.
