North Carolina State Issue One Hundred-Dollar Note
Written date "Jan. 30th, 1862."
The quality of printing and sheer quantity of southern currencies were
considering that Confederate and North Carolina printers were plagued
and had to obtain many of their materials and presses from foreign
sources. Lack of
paper forced officials to print some currency on old or used paper.
Shown here is the
obverse (front) of a North Carolina $100 note and its reverse, which
reveals that the
money was printed on the back of a canceled or misprinted bond.
