    Fr. 6 $10 New York Demand Note

    Fr. 6 $10 1861 Demand Note PMG Fine 12.
    All $10 Demand Notes are much scarcer than their related $5 examples. The well-executed American Bank Note Company face plate features Frederick Girsch's engraving of Abraham Lincoln at the left. The eagle vignette, E Pluribus Unum, that originally appeared on Obsolete bank notes, was engraved by Toppan, Carpenter, and Company. Art is symbolized by the right end allegorical female. In rich green on the face are the guilloche at bottom center and the "10" counters flanking the eagle. The exceptionally intricate green back displays different patterns and denomination protection devices used to prevent note note-raising. There are 50 examples reported on Track & Price including Mike's. No series, plate C. An intact appearance, although PMG notes this as "Repaired." There is the normal expected soiling, but no severe flaws. Ex: Spink New York, July 11, 2007 sale, lot 5 (realized $2,070).
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
