The central vignette of this intricately engraved note features a view of Moneta seated at left with her arm resting on a chest, with a sheaf of wheat, two sheep, and a cornucopia at the right. In the distance at the center is the state coat of arms, surrounded by what appear to be turbulent seas. The issuing authority is printed in bold letters above, while below is the financial obligation promising redemption in "... Confederate Treasury notes ...". A dark red "FIFTY" overprint is present atop the financial obligation, immediately above the hand signatures of "T. D. Tinsley" the Comptroller General and "R. J. McCamy" for the Treasurer. The ends of the note are dominated by rectangular boxes containing intricate designs and several representations of the denomination. As usual, there is no reverse design, nor is there a stamped treasury seal. This note was printed by Richard H. Howell of Savannah, Georgia, and his imprint can be found in the lower left corner. This note was issued at "Milledgeville", the capital of Georgia at the time, and is dated "April 6, 1864". According to the latest reference work on Georgia currency, there were only 30,000 of these notes issued; with less than 500 thought to remain (this is serial number 87).

The offered specimen is un-circulated, with four sharp corners and fully visible frame lines. Light, even toning is visible across the entire note, not uncommon for pieces of this type. A very nice example of this higher denomination piece.
