Found: One 20-dollar bill -- Confederate money!

... just don't try spending it 'round heya ...

from Don Norris



Some years ago, probably when I was living (and working) with my Aunt Gladys and Uncle Carl in Miami, I came into this Confederate twenty dollar note. It must have been from Carl, for he jokingly told me "Don't try to spend it up north".

The note was placed in an envelope and later placed in our desk drawer in Melrose, never to be seen again until a few weeks ago when we were sorting through a bunch of old papers. The sawbuck was right where I left it so many years ago, and now I have no idea what to do with it -- except to put it back the desk drawer.
