Virginia Obsolete Currency Central Bank of VA Ten Dollar banknote
SKU: Central Bank Staunton 10 dollars 3003
Ten dollar bank note from the Central Bank of Virginia issued on the eve of the Civil War in 1860 at Staunton, a small town in the Shenandoah Valley that saw a lot of action during the rebellion. A beautifully executed obsolete bill made by the American Bank note company. At the left is a farmer with a scythe, the center vignette shows a planter watching the harvesting of his crops, a young girl most likely at school and a small eagle are at the left. The condition is very fine but choice for the grade with very dark printing and excellent centering. A very small nick is out of the bottom border. The picture shows the actual Central Bank of Virginia banknote that is for sale at Brandywine General Store.
