registeroftheconfederatedebtT.jpg - 2425 Bytes Description: "Register of the Confederate Debt" - Raphael Thian was a US sergeant that was persuaded to give up his active duty career to join General Winfield Scott's civilian staff. From the Adjutant General's Office (AGO) he rose to Chief Clerk. After the war, this close position to the Confederate archives gave him access to the captured notes, bonds and Confederate financial records. For over 15 years, he complied the Confederate debt, by congressional acts, series, notes, bonds, denominations, serial numbers and who signed for the Treasurer & the Register. Its value today is exactly as the Confederates used their own records, to identify counterfeits, determine who signed a certain note, summarize totals of each type of note by series and similar information on Confederate bonds. This book is not a primer, recommended only for serious collectors and students of Confederate finance. Originally published in 1880 this is an extremely rare book with only 5 copies extant. We have available the only other printing, 1972, which is hardback with 190 pages registering the Confederate debt with tabular exhibits. Price: $79.95.
