This is scarce first issue fractional currency. This is also known as postage currency since the design utilizes the same portrait that was on a then-current 10 cent postage stamp featuring a likeness of George Washington.

Currency Highlights:
  • First issue fractional currency.
  • Housed in an archival quality currency sleeve.
  • Very Good condition.
  • Face: An engraving of one of the contemporary issue of 10 cent postage stamps featuring a bust of George Washington.
  • Back: Black printing of the obligation at center surrounding a large numeral “10” with an intricate engraving.
  • This is the straight edge type with the ABC monogram on back—Friedberg #1242.
