I have purchased this as one of my last purchases this year. I am hoping to glean some information from someone who may have similar?
It was listed scpc5 I am not sure what that means?

Really I liked the look of it, as one does, so bought it.

Thanks in advance

Postage currency was issued due to a shortage of coins during the Civil War. PC5 is the catalog number in the Scott Specialized Catalogue of US Stamps. There are 16 different varieties of postage currency - 4 denominations (5, 10, 25, and 50 cents) with each denomination existing with and without perforations and with and without the American Bank Note Company imprint. PC5 is the 5 cent with the imprint and imperforate.

Here are images of the back of the 10 cent denomination with and without the American Banknote Company logo (below and to the right of the design)
