This note has 2 red "X"'s representing the Roman numeral Ten. The shading in the X's is the coarse variety and is watermarked with a script "CSA". This note has seen some circulation, but is not damaged as many CSA paper money issues are due to the quality of paper being used.
These Confederate issues were once scorned by collectors, but are now in demand and rising in value. They have become a favorite with collectors due to the different issues and variety of designs.
The necessity of financing military operations during the Civil War forced the Confederate government to print paper money, just as the U.S. government did for the first time.
