    Exceedingly Rare $10,000 Treasury Certificate of Deposit

    Fr. UNL $10,000 Temporary Loan of 1862 St. Louis Office of the Assistant Treasurer of the United States 186_ Hessler X134E Remainder PCGS Very Fine 25.
    Back in 2017 at FUN we sold an identical example of the type in a PMG VF 25 Net grade with restorations for $11,162.50. This S/N 598 example also a 25 has more eye appeal and a brighter look despite the comment about the small edge tear. Hessler gives this number his highest rarity rating of R8, 1 to 3 known. Assistant Treasurers were authorized to receive deposits of not less than $100 for a term of not less than 30 days. In return, they would issue a certificate of deposit earning 5% per annum. In order to get your money back you had to turn in your certificate of deposit. This resulted in the extreme rarity of these certificates. The left vignette is of a Civil War soldier in Zouave dress and the center vignette is of "The Eagle's Nest." This is the third example now that we have auctioned and the nicest of that surviving trio.
