    Historical Presentation Set

    Fr. 1076a Hessler 1244E $100 1914 Red Seal Federal Reserve Note Face and Back Proofs Presentation Set Choice New. This extraordinary historical matted set consists of a $100 1914 Red Seal Richmond face, a $100 1914 back, a presentation memo, and an engraving of Labor, Plenty, America, Peace and Commerce with "final" pencilled on the back. The engraving is what the back of the $100 FRN is based upon and it is taken from a Washington, DC mural that was painted by the original recipient of these items, Kenyon Cox, the famed American painter. The presentation was done by Secretary of the Treasury William G. McAdoo on December 21, 1914. The face is a paste-up note of the design elements and shows some mucilage as a result. The back and the engraving items have remained bright. All three of these items have BEP control numbers on the back, too. This is one of the few instances where Proof notes formally left the BEP. This is a great item for the serious collector of large size. (Total: 4 items)
