US CURRENCY 1874 10 CENT FRACTIONAL Old Paper Money F
187410 CENT NOTE,GREEN SEAL
FIFTH ISSUE, 1874-1876
This is a distinctively different note from most US Currency.Itis one of theHARDER TO FIND--Extra SMALLSIZEFRACTIONAL NOTES, the1874 $.10 US NOTE from the Fifth Issue inFINE condition in my opinion, but you can judge for yourself to make the final decisionwith the photos above, which can be enlarged. It has the of small portrait ofWilliam M Meredith, who was Secretary of the Treasury from 1849-1850. It was issuedin 1874 while U.S. Grant was the President. In the years of the US Civil War starting in 1862 there was a critical shortage of coins. It became such a problem that for 14 years the government issued small size notes called FRACTIONAL CURRENCY.
The note isfirm, fairlyclean on the frontand a good looking little note despite its age,with4nearly full corners, and it hasgood color contrast with nowriting, ink,or other missing pieces.There aresigns ofnormaluse with light soiling.It haswrinkles and flattened folds. Thereareno pinholes or edge tears.This isanice decent example of old paper money especially for a fractional note which are often very worn out when they are found. You can enlarge the photos for a closer look. These were used in stead of coins so saw plenty of use in trade and commerce following the Civil War.
The art work is simple and the note is less than onethird that ofmodern notes.It is excellent for display!
Book value is $25.00 inFine condition, $65 in CU, so place a offer and enjoy a bargain. Some retailers and Shop at Home TV charge much more that book value for this note when they can find it.This noteoften sells for well over book value even on !So if you need it toadd something special toyourcurrency collection this may bejust theopportunity, don't let it slip by.
