Coin ID: 4425393008
Montgomery notes are considered to be the most important Confederate notes ever produced by the Confederate States of America. Regarded as the trophy series of the South; there are only 189 known survivors for the $100 denominated example. Printed by the National Bank Note Company in New York City one month before the South seceded from the Union; these notes were printed in sheets of $50-$100-$500-$1000. Historically significant and immensely important to the Confederates determined attempt to withdrawal from the Union; this example embodies the passion and commitment of their ill fated struggle. This note portrays a detailed engraving of a wood burning locomotive vignette with Ceres; the Goddess of Agriculture portrayed on the side. This example maintains its dark green color; bold signatures and pleasing margins. Unlike most Montgomery notes; this example is not cancelled and possesses exceptional eye appeal and print detail. There are some professionally closed pinholes and has been previously mounted as noted by PMG however these comments do not detract from the overall beauty and grandeur of this important note. This is one of the FINEST and highest graded examples we have handled and deserves a place of prominence in any significant numismatic collection.
