CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA $20

Paper Money-U.S. | Longstrider

Below is my example of a Confederate States of America $20 note. It is classified as a Type-67 or Criswell-507. Both of these are numbers to classify all the variables of all the notes. There is also a PF number. In this case it is a PF-6. The PF number is a Fricke number system that uses 1 through the number of varieties for each type note. This Type-67 note has 42 varieties. My numbers indicate this note is a Series 3 with a Rarity of 3, meaning there is a population of 10001-50000 known. A very common note. Thought it was easy didn’t you?? One last thing.

THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES

Coins | Longstrider

My newest blog is on my new 1864 Civil War Token. This one is commonly called Liberty-Our Army for the features on it. It is graded MS 64 BN by NGC. According to NGC it was encapsulated and graded on 3/5/2018. That means it doesn't need to be resubmitted till 3/5/2028. It is a F-47/332 a. That means the dies used are Patriotic die 47 on the obverse. This features the date, 1864 on the bottom and Conical Hat Liberty Head in the middle. At the top is LIBERTY. There are 12 border stars, 6x6, along the sides. The dies are by Charles D. Horter. The reverse die is 332 a. It features a closed wreath surrounding a star OUR ARMY and another star. The "a" means it is made of copper, in this case, or brass. It is of a common rarity. The "F" stands for Dr. George Fuld who developed all the die numbers.
