T-18. Richmond, Va., September 23, 1861. Vignette of large sailing ship at center, sailor at capstan at left. This is a contemporary (NOT A FAKE) counterfeit produced and circulated during the War Between the States to help undermine the C.S.A. currency and their economy. Most were produced from wooden plates by the master counterfeiter S.C. Upham of Philadelphia. Very fine example. (CT18/132B) reference number used in "A Guide Book of Counterfeit Confederate Currency," by George B. Tremmel.
