    One of Only Eleven Reported Examples

    Fr. 327 $50 1880 Silver Certificate PCGS Very Fine 35.
    The design is uninterrupted on this moderately circulated note that retains wonderful eye appeal. The overprint and paper both retain good color. Edward Everett's portrait, as engraved by Charles Schlecht, is seen at right. Although Everett held a number of offices over the years, including Governor of Massachusetts and Secretary of State during Millard Fillmore's administration (he was appointed to the post after Daniel Webster's death), he is perhaps best remembered as the orator who spoke prior to Lincoln at the dedication of Gettysburg National Cemetery on November 19, 1863. Everett was well known for his speaking abilities and delivered a speech that lasted over two hours at that event. In contrast, Lincoln's well remembered speech on that occasion lasted a mere two minutes. Everett later wrote to Lincoln, "I should be glad if I could flatter myself that I came as near to the central idea of the occasion, in two hours, as you did in two minutes." The Bruce-Wyman signature combination is one of the scarcer Friedberg numbers for the 1880 Series. The Treasury seal was changed to a large brown seal for this series and a large "L" counter was also added. The note is one of only eleven listed in the Track & Price census.
