Sorry, but the above answer is totally incorrect. While phony Confederate currency has always been available, even the real notes have never been worth more than a few dollars even to avid collectors. You have to understand that even with the numerous fakes, the Confederate government printed huge supplies of these bills during the war, which is one reason that inflation was killing the South long before the end of the war actually came. It's a simple case of supply and demand. The supply of genuine bills is vast, so the value is less than you might think.
Below, I've included a website selling genuine Confederate currency. You can see by the prices that these bills are far from "Priceless."Source(s): http://www.csanotes.com/1863_notes.htm

Late in the 20th century (1900s) Confederate money, as collectibles, became priceless, if it was really from the Civil War era.
