20” X 24”
LIMITED EDITION OF ONLY 22
Printed by the United States Treasury, Bureau of Engraving and printing, from the actual dies and plates, this rare collection of intaglio bank notes (printed on one side only, not legal tender) includes the following:
The back of an 1882 $100 “Brown back” National Bank note. These notes were issued in the second chapter period, July 12, 1882 to April 11, 1902 all in Series 1882.
The front of a $500,000,000 coupon Treasury note. The largest fiduciary instrument printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and issued by the Federal Government. A coupon Treasury note is a negotiable bearer security: one which is payable to anyone having possession of the security. The owner’s name is not shown on the document and, for that reason, the security should be treated and safeguarded as carefully as cash.
The back of an 1870 $100 National Bank note, First Chapter Period issued in the state of Tennessee. The offset printed background of this card, by A. Ruger in 1870, is a panoramic view of Memphis, Tennessee.
This rare collection is a limited edition of only 22 and is signed and numbered by Rare World Treasures (RWT).
