Reason
High quality, high EV (greater EV viewed as a set). All notes are from the Smithsonian Institution collection.
This set nomination is a complete type reference set of U.S. Treasury Notes, Series 1890 and 1891. Treasury notes (also referred to as Coin Notes) were issued in two series: 1890 (also known as the “fancy back” design) and 1891 (the “open back” design). Unlike some of the other U.S. banknotes in circulation at the time (e.g., Gold and Silver certificates), Treasury or Coin notes could be redeemed in either gold or silver specie at the discretion of the United States Department of the Treasury.

The series of 1890/1891 was issued in denominations of $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50 (1891 only), $100, $500 (approved for 1891 but never issued), and $1,000. The majority of the notes depict historically significant figures in U.S. military history (6), as well as a Secretary of State, Secretary of the Treasury, and a Chief Justice of the United States. Captions include: denomination, reference number, and person depicted.


Original – A 16-note complete type reference set of U.S. Treasury Notes, Series 1890 and 1891.
