This week's Featured Web Site is suggested by John and Nancy Wilson of Ocala, FL, who write:
It is very unusual to find such an excellent site (Rebel States Currency by Kurt Jacoboni), that gives you so much information regarding currency issued by the States of the Confederacy. Nothing appears to be for sale on the site which we think is interesting and educational enough to be the E-sylum site of the week.
Welcome to Rebel States Currency. I am a collector of both Confederate and U.S. currency that was issued during the American Civil War. This site is strictly for enjoyment and educational purposes and is NOT an endorsement of the policies for which the Confederate States of America was founded on. The following pages contain currency issued by the seceded state governments of the individual Southern states as well as currency issued by the central Confederate government, U.S. Fractional currency, and Civil War sidearms used by both sides, from my personal collection. Also included is a comprehensive list of the serial numbers of known modern fake Confederate and Southern state issued notes as well as instructions on how to tell the difference between a real note and the modern made reproductions that are being represented as authentic on some of the internet auction sites.
