CT-XXI/C2 $20 1861 Female Riding Deer Bogus Note Blank Back PMG Very Fine 25. The Female Riding Deer (FRD) fantasy or bogus note was thought for years to be an official Confederate issue and, in fact, saw widespread circulation. No Confederate collection is complete without an example. The central vignette is actually of the Roman goddess Diana. Recently discovered evidence about this issue is discussed in detail in A Guide Book of Counterfeit Confederate Currency by George B. in Tremmel, pages 241-46. This orange overprint example has printed signatures and hand-written pencilled serial numbers. These original examples with blank backs are really very desirable. HID08101242017
