Default Confederate Currency Questions

1st off, sorry for the large pictures! I thought they might help show the quality...

My wife's grandmother was going to throw these away thinking they were worthless. Luckily, her mom said why don't we wait and see and convinced her to hold onto them. I'm looking for some information on the below if anyone has time to comment. Not looking to sell at the moment...

1) Are they authentic (everything seems to check out)?
2) Anything particularly rare in there?
3) I know condition impacts pricing quite a bit. Anything you think is above average in quality?
4) Ballpark in price (individual or as a lot)?
5) anything else you think I should know?

Thanks for any help you have!

I have so much old CSA currency I use it to roll my ganja and spark a Marley.

I used to collect world currency so I bought lots of the old CSA stuff for like $5-6 thinking I was getting a deal. Not so much. Not even worth that. Why some people pay to grade the stuff is beyond me. Most of it is useless and worthless - they printed so much of it back in the day.

There might be a gem in the odd mix, like with a notable signature or number, but I doubt it.

What's funny is people on EBay find some old CSA currency and post it like they have found the holy grail. With atmospheric prices to match.

I've seen people trying to sell souvenirs from Civil War battlefield tourism gift shops as real, that's my concern in buying bills like these

I'm sure you've figured this out by now, but those are all real. Nothing spectacular, with the Bank of Chattanooga being the best. Without getting into specifics most of those are around $20-$30.

cool pieces. My 3x great grandfather owned several hundred acres back in Arkansas during the war that he used to farm and raise cattle. He was a captain in the confederacy and was captured at Vicksburg. He spent the rest of the war in a Union prison in Baltimore. Well his wife had no idea what happened to him and since she stopped getting letters from him she assumed he had been KIA. She sold the farm and moved back to Tennessee with her family. Well the problem is he wasn't dead, and when the war ended her confederate money was worthless. They had to start over in Tennessee and eventually moved down to northeast Arkansas to farm where we live and still farm today. My 2x grandpa (his son) died when my dad was 13 so my dad was able to get that story firsthand and actually had the foresight to write down all the details. Those papers with his stories are some of my most prized posessions!

There’s a lot that graded does well and is past $5-6
