This was the first Virginia War issue and was done in 2 different acts. This 10.00 bill was from the 2nd act of June 28, 1861, which authorized the issuance of 4,000,000.00. Half of which were to be interest bearing notes paying interest at the rate of 6% and the other half to be non interest bearing notes. Hoyer and Ludwig of Richmond were the printers.
