The Confederate States of America began issuing its own, separate currency from the United States shortly after its secession. As many as 10 banks, lithographic companies, and other private entities helped the Confederate government produce and circulate coins and banknotes of the Confederate states dollar. Today, you have the opportunity to buy Very Fine-condition 1862-1863 $100 Confederate Currency Notes online at Provident Metals.
The Confederacy issued its banknotes over the course of seven series between 1861 and 1864, with the last date marks on banknotes coming in 1865 in the waning days of the US Civil War. Confederate banknotes ranged from being interest-bearing notes payable after 12 months or 2 years, depending on the series of issue. Later notes were only payable within six months to two years of ratification of a peace treaty between the United States and the Confederate States.
The obverse side of the 1862-1863 $100 Confederate Currency Notes comes with the only printed design elements. These particular $100 Confederate Currency Notes feature a design element common to Confederate notes, that of slaves working.

The reverse field of the notes has been left blank on purpose.
The 4th Series of $100 Confederate banknotes featured three different producers and two different designs. Keatinge & Ball of Richmond, Virginia, issued a design with slaves working in a field along with a vignette of John C. Calhoun. J.T. Patterson & Co of Columbia, South Carolina, issued the designs found on these particular notes. Hoyer & Ludwig of Richmond, Virginia, also issued this design. There is a slight difference in the appearance of the steam on some of the notes, with some showing diffused steam rising from the smokestack of the locomotive, while others should more billowing.
