1865 $10 Southern State Note, Milledgeville, Georgia



Add to Cart

Now own a Southern State $10 Note – still in crisp unused condition after 155 years. Issued at Milledgeville, the capital of Georgia during the Civil War, its face bears the state’s coat of arms at the center. In the lower left corner, a locomotive pulls a passenger train – a symbol of the state’s economy and transportation network that Union General William T. Sherman destroyed on his “march to the sea” from Atlanta to Savannah in 1864.

Forced out of Milledgeville because of Sherman’s military campaign, the Georgia General Assembly was not able to reconvene until early 1865, and finally authorized these uniface $10 notes on March 20. They made it into the Treasury on May 8, 1865, one day before the Civil War ended – and were never issued. Only some 7,000 were printed. Now that well over a century has passed, who knows how many still survive in this crisp unused condition? Order today.
