Confederate dollars were issued just two months after the southern states seceded from the Union to form the Confederate States of America. Unlike coins and bills from the United States, the coins and notes of the Confederate states were issued by a variety of sources, often with the backing of bank money or that of private citizens. Remaining specimens from the Civil War era are low in number and represent a different era of American paper money.

Keatinge & Ball was one of a number of printers and engravers of Confederate dollars. The company issued notes across all seven series of Confederate paper money releases and often noted the city and date of issue on the note. In 1862, the company relocated to Richmond, Virginia. Most of the companies that printed and engraved Confederate dollars were in either Richmond or New Orleans, Louisiana, by wars end.

On the obverse of the 1864 $500 Confederate States of America Note is a portrait of Stonewall Jackson in the lower-right. Thomas Jonathan Stonewall Jackson was a Lieutenant General in the Confederate Army who earned the nickname Stonewall for his determined defense of Confederate lines at the First Battle of Bull Run. The design field on this face also includes the seal of the Confederate States of America on the left, along with the Confederate battle flag. The reverse face of the notes is blank and offers only see-through visuals of the obverse print.
Confederate States of America notes are distinctive for the often crooked lines on the notes and the uniqueness of serial numbers and signatures. Confederate dollar notes were hastily conceived and rushed through production without the equipment and presses in place that the United States had for its money. As such, CSA Notes were cut by hand, resulting in uneven lines from one note to the next. Additionally, signatures for a representative Register and Treasurer were handwritten, and clerks often handwrote the serial numbers or hand-stamped the numbers.
