This is one of the very first Legal Tender notes issued by the United States!
The necessity of financing military operations during the Civil War finally forced the federal government to print paper money. This $5 note has a superb likeness of "Freedom", the statue that sits atop the dome of the U.S. Capitol at left. A small portrait of Alexander Hamilton, 1st Secretary of the Treasury under Washington is at right. A nicely engraved reverse graces this early note from the Civil War era. Signatures of Chittenden and Spinner. This note is in Very Good condition with some roughness at the edges that is typical of these early U.S. paper money issues, but still a very decent and presentable example of this early note! Serial Number #92120. Friedberg#63.
