Issued under the Act of February 17, 1864, this note features a portrait of Judah P. Benjamin in an oval along the right hand edge. Benjamin served the Confederacy as attorney general, secretary of war, and secretary of state in succession. Dominating the center of the note is the numerical denomination upon a geometric design, with the issuing authority and the financial obligation below. An attractive orange-red overprint covers the entire front, with the strength of the color being determined by the amount of ink available when the note was printed. Engraved and printed by Keatinge & Ball of Columbia, South Carolina, this note is hand numbered and hand signed in dark brown ink (standard for the era). As with many other notes of the era, there is no reverse design on this piece (generally these notes are graded from the reverse since folds are very easy to see on the blank paper).

This particular note is crisp un-circulated, with clean paper and virtually full margins (cut a little tight along the top and at lower left). Sharp contrast between the dark black printing and the light orange overprint give this piece wonderful eye appeal and make it an excellent candidate for a high grade Confederate type set.
