Legal Tender Notes
Very Choice 1874 $2 Legal Tender Note

Friedberg 43 (W-311). 1874 $2 Legal Tender Note. PCGS Currency Very Choice New 64 PPQ.
Naturally wavy paper and large, even margins are featured on this Very Choice 1874 $2 Legal Tender Note. The series of 1874 Twos continued with the same face design as the Series of 1869 except for minor changes in seal type, tints and overprint. A small spiked Treasury Seal is seen at lower left with a pink scalloped ornament in the lower right corner. The serial numbers are printed in red and the engraved signatures of Allison and Spinner are along the bottom near center. The back design is new and is more ornate than the previous series, with COLUMBIAN BANK NOTE CO. above and WASHINGTON D.C. below. Columbian was a minor entry in the printing of federal currency. Series of 1874 $2s were issued from July 13, 1874, to September 13, 1875. This example displays sharply printed engraved details along with boldly colored overprints, which combine to provide great aesthetic appeal.

PCGS Population: 3, 2 finer.
