Bought this note for the pillar dollar pictured on it.
I collect (shipwreck) pillar dollars, but I have no idear for what the Corporation of Richmond stands for.

Cities and towns are "incorporated", and thus referred to as "Corporation".

That's an interesting note, as it was issued during the Civil War, but does not have references to the Confederacy.

I presume you know about Bob Schreiner’s webpage. Maybe Andres is Bob Schreiner?

He does mention a Fraudulent Corporation of Richmond note.

I don't know whether your note is fraudulent or not. I have not been able to find any of the Corporation of Richmond notes in any catalog. I have also seen 50 cent and $2 notes. You can find many in the Heritage archives.

Hugh Shull has this note listed in his new catalog, both as genuine and counterfeits. If you were to get in touch with him, he would probably be able to tell you more about it. Here's his contact info (he doesn't have an email address to my knowledge):

Hugh Shull
PO Box 2522
Lexington, SC 29071
803-996-3660

Thanks for the info, I'm not Bob Schreiner, but a dutch collector of US currency:
mainly obsolete (incl CSA) & Large Size notes.
this note looks & feels very original to me, and its well circulated,condition: Very Good - Fine at best.
could be ofcause a counterfeited note of the 1860's, that info would be in the
new catalog of Hugh Shull ?
I only have the Red Book 2007-Southern States- by Hugh Shull

The catalog I referred to is just that -- a fixed price list catalog Hugh issues twice a year. It doesn't have any information you would find useful for identification; I only mentioned it because it lists both genuine and counterfeit versions of the 1861 Richmond $1 for sale. I'm no expert in southern material, but he is. I hope that helps clarify things.
