    Sole Reported Uncut Pair of Fr. TN-14a $10 Double-Signature Remainders
    Ex: Anderson and Taylor Collections

    United States - Act of February 24, 1815 Uncut Partial Sheet of $10-$10 Treasury Notes. Hessler X83C, Fr. TN-14a. Double-Signature Remainders. PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45.
    Double-Signature $10 Fr. TN-14a notes are the most frequently encountered War of 1812 Treasury Notes. Despite a relatively generous census of approximately two dozen notes, they have proven to be popular. Several major Federal Note collectors have acquired this type to represent the essential series. Within the $10 double-signature remainders census, five are reported on multiples including this uncut pair that Mike obtained at the 2019 Anderson sale.

    The bottom two G-H impressions are from the four-subject E-F-G-H sheet engraved and printed by Murray, Draper, Fairman & Co. in Philadelphia. These notes are uniface on blue and red fiber UNITED STATES watermarked bond paper in a size and style similar to the prior proof. The Federal eagle at the upper left has its left wing raised higher than its right; in its right talon is an olive branch intertwined with greenery, and in its left are three arrows. A shield rests on its breast, a ribbon with E PLURIBUS UNUM is in its beak, and the radiant sun is behind. Intricate pattern engraving appears on all four sides, and white-on-black textual denominations are at each end. Engraved March 25, 1815. The obligation across the center states, "The UNITED STATES promise to receive this Note for TEN dollars in all payments to them; or to fund the amount at seven per cent. interest ... " Engraved lines designate signature positions: at lower left for the "Register of the Treasury" and at lower right for the two "In behalf of the United States" signers. A short line is at the top for the serial number, but there is no payee or payable location line as used on prior acts. The clause "Receivable everywhere by the United States in payment of duties taxes & public lands" has been replaced by the textual denomination.

    This plate position G-H pair has Samuel Clarke and Edward Fox signatures at the right end. It does not have the final signature of the Register at the left. A handsome and distinctive multiple. Both impressions are bold with ample side margins. The top and bottom have some uneven cutting as often seen. PMG notes a "Minor Ink Burn," which is not severe. Ex: March 2019 ANA sale, lot 3026; Joel Anderson Collection; our February 2005 Taylor Family Collection sale, lot 16729 (realized $10,350). The only reported uncut pair and very attractive.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
