I have a certified copy of a bank note on Parliament paper for the date December 1, 1861 for 10 cents from the Bank of Tennessee.  It reads "Bank of Tennessee will pay ten cents to Bearer Nashville, December 1st 1861. I was wondering if this is worth anything nowadays. I cant find any history about it either or why it was written at that time.  Info on that too will be appreciated.
