Hi Julie,
The most valuable one, depending upon condition and authenticity, would be the So. Carolina piece.  This could be worth a couple of thousand dollars.  As for the "Civil War" notes, those are more common.  They could be just $20 notes but I really have to see all of them, authenticate them, and then place a value on them.
Now you can contact other dealers, but they too will have to inspect the notes to place a value on them.
If you want to send me the notes for inspection and an offer, call me at 800-474-6960 and I will advise you of the best way to do so.
