yup, ccg is right. that crutch williams site is an excellent resource for checking serial #'s to known confederate/texas fakes.

 

other signs that the note is a novelty:

 

weird pinkish color

 

the note's ink is printed so that it looks worn, even though the paper shows no wear

 

and while this isn't exactly a sign, the lack of cancellation cut-marks on texas notes are pretty rare. any note without razor slashes or cutouts should be looked at very carefully, since the difference in value between a note with cut marks and a note without them could mean a few thousand dollars- especially notes with firm wrinkle-free paper like the scan above. most texas notes tend to be limp and wrinkle-prone.
