Issued under the Act of February 17, 1864, this note features a portrait of Confederate President Jefferson Davis in an oval at the center, surrounded by the issuing authority and the financial obligation. Prior to the war, Davis had served as a soldier, congressman, senator, and secretary of war within the United States government. He would have the distinction of serving as the only president of the Confederate States of America. At the close of the war, Davis fled Richmond and was finally captured in Irwinville, Georgia on May 10, 1865. He spent 2 years in prison at Fort Monroe, Virginia, and after traveling in Canada and abroad, he settled near Biloxi, Mississippi and wrote his monumental work The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government (1881). Each of the upper corners features a large circular medallion with the denomination upon it, with the whole note framed by a fancy geometric border. A lovely pink overprint covers the entire front, with the strength of the color being determined by the amount of ink available to the printers. The back of this issue features a very intricate geometric design beneath the denomination, all printed in a lovely blue ink. As with the other 1864 issues, this note was printed by Keatinge & Ball of Columbia, South Carolina.

This particular piece is in un-circulated condition, with clean paper and virtually intact margins (somewhat tight along the left hand edge). A very nice example of this popular note.
