    Milwaukee, WI - $10 1882 Brown Back Fr. 485 The Wisconsin NB Ch. # (M)4817
    A nice Brown Back for type, with sharp colors and bold black signatures. This note shows the second of the two seals used on this state's Nationals, a change necessitated by the adoption of a new seal by the state in 1881. The new seal is a rather busy affair with a central shield divided into quarters, with a smaller shield in the center which displays the shield of the United States surrounded by the motto E Pluribus Unum. On each side of the shield is a figure, a sailor to the left and a miner to the right, with each quarter of the shield containing an object of everyday life in Wisconsin...a hammer, a plow, a pick and shovel, and an anchor. Atop the shield on a pedestal is a badger, and atop the badger is the motto Forward. PCGS About New 50.
