I originally set this page up
as Issued Place, which means the stamp or manuscript
endorsement has the location where a 730 note was issued,
reissued or paid out from. However, many collect these
notes with any type of endorsement or stamp. Some of
those are official receipts, or From, and Other post WAR
endorsements such as UCV, UDC, court cases, advertising,
&c. Any 730 with location will be imaged on this
page. The images are listed in alphabetical order and
PLACE constitutes one of several ways you can collect Trains
All the images are from notes in TRAINMEN collections.
These images may be saved for your personal reference; but,
they remain the property of TRAINMEN, Col Crutch Williams CSA

other purpose without first requesting and being granted

February 22, 1863 issued by Fraley. This piece
is probably military; but, could have been civil.
He endorsed the note as Capt. & ACS which
stands for Acting Commissary of Subsistance CSA.
Commissary was a position and not all who held
the position had military rank. Those needed in the
military were later redesignated Quarter Master or
AQM and the others, with rank removed, simply
became Agents of the Treasury Department. A
Commissary Agent acted in dual role for Military
and Civil government well into 1863.
This is definately a military issue as Cabel has title

Previous listing as Camp Brown
was incorrect. We
weren't sure of the name until another clearer example showed
up. Camp Bruin was located across the Mississippi River
and to the south of Vicksburg, Mississippi. It is today
identified as an oxbow lake called Lake Bruin which is found in
Tensas Parrish, Louisiana.
Military Issue: 9 December 1862
This is the second image of "Camp Bruin" which surfaced January
2015 that led us to change the designation from Camp Brown
to Camp Bruin. Clearly the i is doted here and if you look
close in the first image there is an ink dot above the blue in
the right hand corner.
Issue: 23Mar63 Camp Lilly was a Texas
"camp" probably between San Antonio and Houston or between Port
Lavaca and Houston. Another note recently
surfaced with the same IP stamps found on an AQM Houston issued
note and with San Antonio notes from the same run. For
years it was thought that "Camp Lilly" was a location in
Virginia but we now have the proof it was Texas. Most
likely this note was issued by Edwin Lilly
became AQM of 33rd Texas Cavalry that formed in Houston early
April 1863. The San Antonio notes were earlier, both Camp
Lilly are March 23rd and a Issued Houston AQM is dated April
Most likely a Military Issue
, but it could have
been issued for civil purpose.
The actual place this note was issued is unknown. I have
seen others where it only says "In Camp" with a date. We
decided to image one for reference.
This is the only
known example of manuscript Issued
(South Carolina) known to the

September 5, 1862
September 8, 1862
These are civil issues most likely by Depositary Agent using
Postal Stamp for issue date. There are other dates and
more will be added as imaged. The first has "Issued
manuscript along with the stamp. Many are found this
way. The second doesn't have the manuscript issued.
The first also has the issue date cancelled. There are
several possible reasons for this and difficult to say without
seeing the whole note; but, I've seen examples that fit the
following: 1) The date stamp was applied and the
note wasn't used on that day. A new stamp with date was
added later. 2) The note was issued on this date,
taken back in and reissued with another stamp and the first was
cancelled out. 3) When interest was paid 1 Jan 1863,
the date was struck out to remind the agent this paticular note
had been accounted.
Another Charleston issued:
B.C. Pressley, Assistant Treasurer - Charleston, S.C.
This first stamp only has the month and day and most seen are
like this. The year was of course 1862. The second
stamp has 1862 added manuscript. Perhaps whoever was
helping Pressley on this date decided he needed to add the year.
In any case it is an unusual combination. Most
stamps are blurred as this one is and hard to read. The
stamp at left is sharp and very easy to read and that is quite
unusual for one of these issues.
ReIssued from Assistant Treasurer's Office,
This large Reissue stamp is very uncommon.
This stamp were likely made in Richmond and sent out to
the Assistant Treasurers to help them with the reissuance of 730
an interesting endorsement. We believe it says From Chattanooga off
Office. But it could just as easily be Tenn(essee)
Chattanooga Off(ice). We are trying to determine if
the handwriting is that of JGM Ramsey or Jesse Thomas.
Both were Tennessee Treasury Agents. However, this note,
which is undated, was probably issued by Ramsay prior to October
1862. I don't have the information handy as I create
this page; but, Ramsey wrote to CG Memminger and said he was
sorry that he missed one of the Treasury memos. Memminger
had sent a notice to all his Agents to place a date on the back
of the notes they issued or paid out that would be used for
interest calculations. Ramsey issued out a number of notes
before he read the memo. I classify this note as a civil
issue; but it could be quasi-military as Ramsay was in charge of
local militia and Secret Agents (spies).
We don't know who issued this note. You can see that Tenn
is very similar to From
on the above
note. Chattanooga is written similar as well. This
note is dated October 15, 1862 and is considered an Agent issue.
This is a Chattanooga Military issue dated May 1st, 1863
This note was issued by AM Bryan, Major & Quarter Master
COLUMBIA SOUTH CAROLINA
This is an interesting piece. It uses an abbreviation to
indicate the place this note was "Received". "Cola" has
been the abbreviation for Columbia S.C. for many years. It
was apparently taken back in and then "Issued November 1862" (I
can't make out the day) by T. Sanford Depositary who was at that
time located in Montgomery Alabama. It says "Recd Cola Oct
9th 1862" which would be Received Columbia SC. It also has
a neat notation of "Good Time". Most likely this was a
soldier's pay and he looking forward to spending this $100 in
town and looking to have a "Good Time
". This note
then made it's way back to Virginia where Interest was paid to
1st Jan 1863 at Richmond VA.
actually a ReIssued note. The note was issued first at
Jackson, Miss and then "issued" again (reissued) Columbia Te
(Tennessee) May 1st, 1863. Jackson was a central location
where merchants came to be paid and where agents came to receive
fund to be paid out in other far reaching locations. There
are two possible reasons for this double issued note.
1) The agent dated for issue a great many notes upon his
arrival and his clerks paid the notes out to various
parties. This note went to an agent who eventually
had the opportunity to issue it as payment for services or
merchandise. 2) The note actually issued out that
day in Jackson and was taken in by an agent somewhere else and
then reissued in Columbia Tenn. I believe the first option
occured as many I see taken back in actually state
"ReIssued". In any case, the note made it back to Jackson,
or to where ever the Jackson Treasury Agent might have been for
the 1864 Interest payment.
This note was Issued at Corpus Christi Texas, April 27th
1863. This note is a very interesting piece because a
Lieutenant is the issuing officer. Most military notes
were issued by Captains or Majors. Lieutenant Charles F.
Bailey was Acting Assistant Quarter Master (AAQM) Confederate
States(CS) Army. This is a Train.

Corpus Christi as well. They're usually found on Hoers

Dallas Texas is a very scarce Issued Place location. There
are less than 10 known. I've only seen one piece in person
and iamges of two others prior to receiving this image early in
Jan 2013. This is different in that it is an Officer
Issued. It was prepared for an officer's signature and the
actual day was also left blank. Someone wrote in 3d
for March 3rd, 1863
and Capt & AQM CSA but the officer didn't add his name.
The name wasn't required. While it would have been
nice to see a name it is still a Military Issue for Dallas Texas

was a very active location in Texas. It was a convergence point
of Rail & Roads located just to the northwest of Houston
that ran to every location in the state. Besides being a
major supply distribution point, it was also a location where
Confederate troops were massed and trained before being shipped
out. Prisoners of War were also brought to Hempstead and
held in a camp nearby. The note at left,
issued December 8th 1862, has initials one Trainman says
are AM&Bro. If this is correct, it most likey was a
merchant issue. However, I think the last part might be
QM. If anyone has information on this piece, please let me

Criswell is said to have made up this stamp for a collector who
wanted one desparately. It is the only Postal Stamp on 730
1862 Interest Hundred that is unknown in numismatic
circles. The 2nd Edition 1986 Dietz Confederate States
Catalog and Handbook lists the eight (8) postmarks used on
Southern currency on page 258. Five examples known to have
been used on these notes are pictured. Those five are
Charleston, S.C.; Houston, Tex:; Jackson, Miss; San Antonio,
Tex; and, Shelbyville, Te. The other three are Lenoir,
N.C.; Richmond, Va; and, Savannah, Ga. You will find
images on this page of all the other postmarks except Richmond,
Va. It is generally believed that this stamp on the 1862

searched out Confederate Postal Stamped notes over 50 years
ago. If you have one, or know someone that owns one,
please ask them to provide an image that I can display. I

LONG SWAMP FLORIDA
Long Swamp Florida was
Commissary of Subsistance depot in Putnam County Florida.
It was probably located somewhere between San Mateo and Satsuma
along the Old San Mateo Road. "Long Swamp" today is a body
of water in the Dunnís Creek Conservation Area.
This note was issued October 1st, 1862 by
Capt Adam G. Summers, Capt & ACS, CSA. His primary
responsibility was herding cattle across the state as well as
stock piling and keeping safe other sundry supplies. His
commanding officer in this area was Brig. General Joseph Finegan
who is most noted for the Battle of Olustee in Baker County
Florida, February 20, 1864. Special Thanks
