In order to satisfy debts incurred by the Union during the Civil War, the U.S. Treasury began printing legal tender notes for circulation in 1862. These notes are also known as United States notes and were originally printed in the classic large-format style. This allows for a greater degree of sophisticated artwork across the surface, which makes legal tender notes among the most beautiful paper currency ever printed in the U.S. Right now, you can buy Very Good 1862 $10 Legal Tender Notes online at Provident Metals.

A portrait of Abraham Lincoln is featured on the obverse of these Legal Tender Notes. For historical context, Lincoln was president when these notes were originally issued to satisfy Union debts. The obverse also features a red Treasury seal on the left side. In the center of the note, there is a bald eagle flying toward the left. And on the far-right side, there is an illustration of a woman dressed in a flowing gown.


Denomination and obligation information is located on the reverse of $10 Legal Tender Notes. The obligation details are in the center and confirm the notes as official legal tender for all debts public and private. However, it excludes duties on imports and interest on public debt. The denomination is featured numerically on either side of this text. There is also a lovely symmetrical pattern that fills out the background.


Issued by the Treasury rather than the Federal Reserve, legal tender notes are considered the longest-running currency program in the nations history. With no interest attached, these notes were printed for circulation between 1862 and 1971 in both the classic large format and the modern small size.
