    Description

    Act of December 26, 1814 $100 Treasury Note Fair. A cut-cancelled example of this rare issue that was authorized near the end of the war, after the American armies had fought back the British advance on Baltimore following the sack and burning of Washington. The top margin of this note is brittle and aged, while the left, bottom, and right portions of the note are missing. Presumably this note was a signed, undated remainder, but it is impossible to know since the portion of the note bearing the signatures is gone. A couple of long splits are reinforced on the back. Only five examples are known for the design type in any grade, and while this note is excessively rare, it is extremely difficult to estimate and we will leave it to the collectors to determine its value.
