    Description

    Classic $10 "Rainbow" with "Great Color" Designation

    Fr. 96 $10 1869 Legal Tender PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    Like all the one-year "Rainbow" denominations, these are always in constant demand despite what numerically is an ample census. This series introduces the design template used for several decades. At the lower left is Daniel Webster. The lower right features Pocahontas being introduced to the English Royal Court. At bottom center is the eagle that when inverted creates the "Jackass" image that inspired the nickname associated with these $10 notes. Margins are very well balanced. This note serves as the exemplification of "Great Color," with that designation by PMG decidedly merited. Mike bought this out of Dean Oakes' catalog in 1999. A Federal currency classic in high grade.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
