More than 6,700 lots of U.S. and world notes will be offered by
Heritage Auctions during its Jan. 5 to 10 Signature Currency Auction
conducted in conjunction with the Florida United Numismatists
convention at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
Among the notes offered will be the Honorable William H. Kelly
Collection of Confederate Notes and Southern Obsoletes. The
consignment includes eight “Montgomery” notes, so named because they
were issued in Montgomery, Ala., when the city was the first capital
of the Confederacy. Two examples each of 1861 $50, $100, $500 and
$1,000 CSA notes will be offered. All eight of those notes were graded
by PCGS Currency.
The Roger H. Durand Santa Claus Notes Collection will also be
offered during the second session of the auction.
