    Elusive Boston Certificate

    Fr. UNL $1000 1862 United States Treasury Assistant Treasurer of the United States at Boston Certificate. This is a punch cancelled unissued Boston Clearing House Association $1000 certificate that would have been payable in at least thirty days with interest in Legal Tender Notes. Due to multiple endorsement lines found on the back, it is believed that these may have had prospects of becoming a circulating medium. Less than a handful of these have popped up in collector circles over the years, with this being the only red-orange example. The others are printed in green ink. As of June 30, 1896, only $3,000 remained outstanding of this issue and it is destined to be forever elusive. This example's punch cancel extends to the bottom edge, while the upper left-hand corner has been dislodged, otherwise Fine-Very Fine and a paper money item that should not be overlooked.
