Do you think it was authentic?

It's a fantasy souvenir piece that was made to sell to tourists at civil war sites back in the 1960's. I've seen plenty of them.

That would explain no "copy".

Neat, but too bad for the guy that bought it.

Granted that I am a relative newcomer, but if I had seen the auction I would have been tempted had I wanted to add such a piece to my collection. However, I wouldn't have been tempted at the price that was paid.

For some reason I would be thinking that the CSA had coins. I know that they printed their bills on rice paper that is decaying as time passes.

It is a curiousity but again not at the price paid. If it was me I would be royally hacked right now at someone (wouldn't know whom).

It happens all the time with fantasy pieces. I like Chinese fantasy coins, but I would be very hesitant to purchase one without doing my research first or having someone look at it.
