1954 Cheerios Confederate Money Examples Album

Album of Confederate Money Examples

During the early 1950s, the Civil War theme became very trendy in America, largely with pre-teens and early teens. Consequently, Cheerios offered this Confederate money album, which could be acquired through the mail for very little and probably some cereal boxtops. I acquired this album in 1968 from its original owner, and it was already about fifteen years old at that time. Today its value is a whopping $10 or so, proveing that not all investments will pay off. But it is a fun album anway. I still have the original shipping envelope, which probably is worth more than the album itself.

    Chad,
    Cheerios Premium confederate banknotes began to be issued in 1954. For 25 cents and a Cheerios box top you received nine notes and an album.

    It is unfortunate, but your single Cheerios $500.00
    banknote has a very small value in today’s market. The entire Album sells for less than $10.00
