    New-York Semi-Weekly Tribune September 17, 1861.
    The front page has an actual size woodcut drawing of a Fr. 208 $100 Treasury Note with five coupons attached. A short article on this new note is also on the front page. This number is not known in issued form as stated in Friedberg. Also, the design in Proof form has a single auction appearance and that resulted in a winning bid of $48,000 in 2018. The newspaper consists of eight pages with dimensions of approximately 17.5 by 22.5. It carries many Civil War news articles and announcements plus a large map of Washington, DC. and the surrounding area. There is some edge and internal wear and some staining to the paper. In addition, there is pencil writing on the top of the front page that reads, "Map of Washington." Also, the front page has many "gutters" as made and of varying lengths and widths. Only one "gutter" interferes with the Fr. 208 and then it is the first and second coupons.
