    Lovely Gem Fr. 247 Educational Deuce

    Fr. 247 $2 1896 Silver Certificate PCGS Banknote Gem Unc 65 PPQ.
    Long considered America's most beautiful notes, the Series 1896 Educational notes were popular with the public from the time of issue providing for a large number of survivors. The center design by Edwin H. Blashfield features Science Presenting Steam and Electricity to Industry and Commerce. Despite the popularity of these notes and the proclivity people had for setting them aside, storage techniques at the time permitted only a small percentage to survive in conditions that did not age the paper, or create bends and folds. This piece was stored perfectly and may have been selected for its sizable margins and beautiful color.
