Money collectors are accustomed to buying items that have more collectible value than face value. Whether it is historic coins, modern bullion coins, or historic notes, the value of the precious metals in a coin and the history of a note often push the collectible worth of a specimen higher. In the case of surviving Confederate paper money, something that was rendered entirely worthless after the war has far more value today than it ever held some 160 years ago. Right now, 1864 $100 Confederate State of America Notes in Very Fine condition are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

Paper notes from the Confederacy are some of the more distinctive remaining examples of American paper money from the 19th century. The Confederate government hastily authorized the issue of Confederate dollars and the notes were often not only signed by hand and given a serial number written by hand one at a time, but also cut from the printing paper by hand. As a result of that latter fact, many Confederate notes had uneven lines.
The obverse of 1864 $100 Confederate States of America Notes features a depiction of Lucy Pickens at the center of the design field. Her right-profile portrait is flanked by a portrait of George W. Randolph in the lower-right field and a vignette of Confederate soldiers in the lower-left field. Lucy Pickens was a prominent socialite in the American South in the 19th century and came to be known as the Queen of the Confederacy during the Civil War.
On the reverse side of 1864 $100 Confederate States of America Notes is the printed value of the note assigned by the Confederacy. This rather simple design includes Hundred through the center in big letters with 100 in each of the four corners.
