Mack Martin of Hartwell, GA submitted the following query related to their research of Georgia paper money. -Editor Ken Latimer and I did a self published book in 2005 entitled State of Georgia Treasury Notes, Certificates and Bonds. It is a comprehensive collectors’ guide to all the currency issued by the State of Georgia during the Civil War. The 95-page reference was produced in color on high-grade paper and contains a great deal of research material not available in any other publication.
All the individuals who signed the notes are identified, and there is a wealth of information and on vignettes, rarity, and counterfeit notes. There is even a section on a number of notes that were overprinted and converted to advertising notes long after the war. Of particular value is detailed information and illustrations for more than 50 error notes, which have become quite popular.
The size of the book is 9"x6" with a double loop spiral binding which was used to make the book strong, easy to carry and use at a convention. In the Currency Of Georgia section of Q. David Bowers' book Obsolete Paper Money this book was used as a reference to the State of Georgia Treasury Notes, Certificates and Bonds. We have a small quantity of the books still available for sale and can provide them to E-Sylum readers for $25 each, which includes shipping. E
Even after a lifetime of research and study, we are still discovering new information about this fascinating and intriguing topic. With the help of several dealers, we have been tracking the serial numbers for the large denomination treasury certificates and the rare 1863 $3 and $4 notes for many years. In the book, we listed the serial numbers for 17 known $3 notes and 16 known $4 notes, as well as numbers for the known $5,000, $10,000, and $20,000 treasury certificates, all of which are extremely rare.
After the book was released, we have added three more $3 notes and two additional $4 notes. We would appreciate the help of any member that has or knows of any other 1863 $3 or $4 notes, and ask that you please send us a scan of the note, or at least the serial number. We will be happy to share the list of serial numbers with anyone interested.
