    Looks like a Confederate bill. Need to get it authenticated before giving it value. Great find either way.

    Not Confederate, the Republic of Texas existed from the time it declared independence from Mexico until annexed by the US in 1845. Texas issued it's own currency during this period. If it is on brittle parchment type paper it is one of the many replica notes, if it is limp and soft it may be genuine.

    Certainly agree it's not a Confederate (Civil War) note. Texas was a Mexican province known as Tejas in the early 1800's. Declared an independent republic in 1836. Admitted into the United States in 1846. Seceded to join the Confederated States of America in 1861. Returned into the Union after the Civil War in 1865.

    Online description of your Note:
    The $100 Currency Note: On the left hand side is a vignette of a coal train hauling goods to signify trade and industry; on the right hand side is another vignette of a ship sailing through choppy waters. In the center of the document at the top is a scene depicting a griffin guarding Liberty (or Minerva, depending on the reference) who is receiving a gold from Mercury/Hermes, the God of Commerce and Trade. Flanking this scene on each side is the Roman Numeral 'C' for one hundred. Centered beneath that is "The Republic of Texas" along with the denomination.
    And a pic: (scroll down) Republic of Texas Bank Notes

    Thanks for all the info. My uncle had it authenticated lats year but the person couldn't or wouldn't give him a price. I don't know who authenticated it. This was found in central Missouri in an old trunk a few years back. So if there's any one who could give us an idea of value.

    Thanks. He was just curious, my uncle is an old timer who collects a lot of things. He has around 50 2 dollar silver certificates and a few 20, 50 and 100's. He just enjoys them for conversation pieces.
