Description Confederate States of America - T29 1861 $10 PF-1, Cr. 237. PCGS Fine 15. This lithographed type was printed in Richmond by Blanton Duncan, and his imprint is seen at the lower left. There is only one variety, and the type was counterfeited with fairly close facsimiles. Very high grade notes are extremely rare. In the vignette at top center, a hunched-over slave picks cotton. Between the counters at right is a framed landscape showing a boat on the water. A dog and safe motif is at the base. Plate D. The circulation is even, but the note is exceptionally well detailed and problem-free. A choice example for the assigned grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, Heritage Auctions Internet Sale (5/2017). (Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions, Realized $270.25.
