This is the from the earliest years of issue of the very popular "Black Eagle" note. An 1899 $1.00 Silver Certificate with a large Black Eagle over the portraits of Lincoln & Grant. This note is technically an Extra Fine, but it has writing in ink near the left border so we are calling it Very Fine and pricing it accordingly. This note still has great eye-appeal. Lyons/Roberts signatures-- Friedberg# 226-a. Date below serial number type.
