I have a good eye for fake currency and I even knew that this serial number was a fake right off.

But man, even a blind person can tell this is a fake print job lol

I reported it, and here is the sellers username. Of course no sales or anything.

The 1864 $500 Jackson note with serial numbers 1 through 20000 were signed by J.C. Joplin "For Treasurer" and W. Miller "For Register" in brown, not black ink. The above pictured note with that serial number is a modern day reproduction note sold in souvenir shops and online for about $12 to $15 for a 12-pak variety of different Confederate notes.

Thank you for your willingness to report this fraud. Makes me mad that someone would do this, and worse than someone might pay the price for what is essentially of no more worth than my roll of TP...and I’d argue the TP is more valuable!

Yes, that is why I reported it to ebay.

No problem! The last thing I would want is for one of my Confederate brothers getting ripped off for $650!

It was the op, the @TheRebelPatriot who reported it but yes, I agree with you on your comment. I notice this seller has 0 ratings and he purposely has put the fake note in a plastic sleeve and given it a fictitious "PMG 30" grade as if the note has been examined, deemed authentic and graded for condition by a professional grading service.

According to the book "Confederate States Paper Money"there were 4 variations (plate letters A to D) and 150,428 notes printed. Also 15 fake serial numbers let a person to know if the note is not real.Is it still just those 15 or have counterfeiters (or a they called reproducers?) "added" any?

There's 16 serial numbers for the 1864 "Stonewall Jackson" $500 note that are modern printed replicas. They are
#393 #9229 #14682 #16599 #16760 #18278 #18935 #19834 #21130 #26326 #26949 #33004 #33546 #36776 #67935 and #82210. There are contemporary counterfeits of this note that were produced in Havana, Cuba during 1864. The last price I was aware of for one of these notes was in the $2,500. range back during the mid 1990's.
 
This is another modern reproduction but this note is from a 1954 promotion from Cheerios that was available for 25 cents and 1 box top from the cereal. I collect the Cheerios Confederate albums when I can find them complete with the original shipping envelope and at a cheap price. General Mills sent a nice tri-folded album and 9 Confederate notes ranging from $1 to $1000. These Cheerios notes are actually the first modern reproductions of Confederate currency and considered fairly close to replicating the originals. These notes predate the Hobby Protection Act so they do not have the required "copy" printed on the notes.

That note wasn't even worth the $500 face value when it was printed in 1864, but $650??!?!!!!????. The sad thing is that EBay probably will do nothing to remove the auction and ban the seller permanently and some poor schmuck will end up buying it for $1000 or more because the sellers friends will bid it up just high enough so they don't price their "live one" out of the auction. Seen it happen a million times. Very sad. I'd like to think there is a special place in Hell for these crooks. 🙏🙏🙏😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

I cranked off an email to PMG just to alert them of this clown's poor attempt of implying that his note was PMG graded in his description and with note being in a large plastic sleeve, albeit flimsy, but the size that the currency certification companies use. Here are two of my Michigan obsolete banknotes that have been certified by the real PMG:

A couple years ago, my grandmother gave me an old snuff can that my GG-Grandfather used to keep ALL of his receipts in, all of them still in there, all in new condition, (never underestimate the preservation power of antique snuff cans), but she kept a Confederate $20 note that was in there.

She asked me to find the value on it, and after looking at its worn condition, (it was carried a LOT) checking the book, I came to the conclusion it was worth $20 to $30 bucks. All she said was:

"Well Confederate money must still be going strong to be worth face value, our US dollars ain't worth that!"
