    Elusive Fr. 354 $2 1890 Treasury Note

    Fr. 354 $2 1890 Treasury Note PMG Choice Very Fine 35.
    A striking 1890 Treasury Note type that is difficult to find in better grades. Like most of the portraiture used on this series, it is Civil War-related. At the far right is Charles Burt's engraving of General James B. McPherson; the large brown treasury seal is at right center. The elaborate green back has a slightly arched TWO in the center. One of the scarcer low-denomination Treasury Notes and an elusive type to obtain. There are approximately 50 known from the 500,000 printed. This evenly circulated ornate back $2 McPherson retains much paper body and exhibits excellent color. A desirable example in a comment-free holder. Ex: Lyn Knight, February 1999 sale, lot 510 (realized $2,750).
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.

    Estimate: $2,500 - $3,500.
