I picked up common $10, $20, and $100 Confederate notes today, but with them was one that is a little more scarce. A Confederate $5 note from the Parish of Rapides which is where Alexandria, Louisiana is located. Alexandria was made famous during the Red River Campaign and burnt to the ground in 1864. Cannot make out the month possibly, January but dated on the 9th of 1863. These were printed by the Police Jury which is similar to a county council and were used to pay parish taxes or fees.

I have 5 or 10 Confedrate bills tucked away. I'll need to dig them out and check them. I bought them around 40 years ago when they were really cheap. It looks like prices have gone up a bit since then. Thanks for showing us your great find!
