    Fr. UNL Hessler SCE22FD ($10 1897 Silver Certificate) Central Vignette Progressive Proof.
    This Agriculture and Forestry face design was printed on India paper and die sunk on to this widely margined card. This pair of female and male allegorical figures were to be front and center for a proposed $10 1897 Series Educational note. However, before the $10 denomination was issued, the Educational $1, $2, and $5s of Series 1896 were replaced with Series 1899 notes. This item is possibly plated on page 116 of U.S. Essay, Proof and Specimen Notes by Gene Hessler. The India paper is partially loose from the card and it grades Extremely Fine, while adhesive remnants are found at the bottom edge and on the back of the card stock.
