FEATURED WEB PAGE: THE WOOKEY HOLE MILL WATERMARK COLLECTION

This week's featured web page is the Wookey Hole Mill Watermark
Collection of Confederate States of America notes on Pierre
Fricke's csaquotes.com web site.

"The Hodgkinson & Co. Wookey Hole Mill watermark CSA notes are some
of the rarest and interesting notes in the series. To actually see
a complete collection of the "collectible" varieties of this watermark
is a unique experience. There was one watermark per sheet of 8 notes
making this watermark even rarer. Only a small number of reams was
imported of which some were used for Virginia State currency. All of
these notes are Rarity 9+ or better, meaning that there are less than
25 known of each. In most cases, there are less than 10 known of many
of these notes making them true rarities in CSA currency.

This mill exists today and is in Britain about two miles from the
town of Wells in Somerset."
