Confederate Currency from the State of North Carolina

Similar to the state of affairs during the American Revolutionary War, the Confederate states printed their own currency during the Civil War as well. These bills, printed in North Carolina in 1863, 1865, and 1870, would continue to depreciate as the war progressed. Eventually, they became so worthless that by the late 19th century they were being given away, which is how George Sheldon, the founder of Memorial Hall Museum, acquired them.
