    Description

    Utica, NY- Wm. J. Baker 25¢ Nov. 1, 1862 Harris UNL
    Mr. Baker, a photographer and ambrotypist, has created an absolutely spectacular piece of currency by affixing a paper print photograph of himself as part of the note, making for a circulating sample of his work. Extremely Fine, with only the barest traces of circulation visible, an extraordinary piece which is likely unique for both the issuer and the process.
