Hi..well if it was real it would be worth thousands of dollars.There were only 607 total of these notes printed making it one of the most rarest of Confederate notes.What you most likely have is a replica which has no value.The way to tell first a lot of these replica are printed on yellow parchment paper.Real Confederate notes were never printed on this type of paper.Second is the signatures, fake notes are printed in black ink and this is printed.Real Confederate notes with the exception of the 50 cent fractional notes have pen signatures signed by hand in brown ink.This is  probably the best way to tell

I too have one of these novelty items.  Mine is Green on one side and dark grey or black on the reverse, which is also a dead give away, the true T-bill or T-Note is printed only on one side.  If it were real, it would be worth at least $50,000.00.
