    Vibrant Mid-Grade $2 "Educational" Note

    Fr. 248 $2 1896 Silver Certificate PMG Choice Very Fine 35 EPQ.
    The $2 "Educational" is another spectacular currency design that is a perennial collector favorite. The magnificent vignette on the face, Science Presenting Steam and Electricity to Industry and Commerce, was designed by Edwin Blashfield and engraved by Charles Schlecht and G.F.C. Smillie. The extremely detailed green back portrays inventors Robert Fulton and Samuel F. B. Morse. Another beautifully balanced and vibrant note. It is fresh and original with little visible wear. This has the look of a higher-grade note at first glance and is perfect for a mid-grade range type set. Ex: Kagin's, August 1987 sale, lot 2035.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
