Author Mike McNeil forwarded the following announcement of his new book on Confederate notes.
A new book for the collector of Confederate Treasury
notes, Confederate Issuers of Train and Hoer Notes will
revolutionize the perception of the military and civil
endorsements on the backs of Confederate T-39, T-40,
and T-41 interest-bearing $100 notes.
288 pages, most in full color.
Civil War history is popular, and this book identifies the military
Quartermasters and Commissaries of Subsistence who used these
interest-bearing notes to purchase supplies for the Confederate war
effort. The book also identifies many of the civil agents who
disbursed these notes for the Confederate Treasury Department.
Gathered as a group effort by the members of the Trainmen, this
new information is now available to all collectors.
Rich historical data and anecdotes are provided for many of the
endorsers of these notes.
Full images of the front and back of each note are provided,
allowing the collector to quickly identify these signatures.
The book format is a compact 9” by 6,” and is easily packed into a
briefcase for ready reference.
The appendix is rich in detail, including essays on the classification
of these endorsements.
Retail priced at US$60, with a short printing run of 1000 copies, the book
is destined to become a collector’s item in its own right.
