The notes will not feature fold lines, but may show off-center designs or edge elements that stray from the margins to the central field.
Confederate States notes were not issued by a central authority within the Confederacy, but rather were issued with the backing of the government by several private entities. As an example, these 1864 $500 Notes were produced by Keatinge & Ball of Columbia, South Carolina. The company was among a handful chosen as its experience as a lithographic firm provided experience in paper handling and production.
