When you purchase $10 Legal Tender Notes in this Provident Metals listing online, they will arrive in clear plastic currency sleeves. The sleeve also has a label from PCGS containing the official certification information. PCGS has assigned these notes a grade of Very Good 10. This indicates that the notes may contain heavy soiling and other blemishes. According to PCGS, a bank would not keep a note in this condition.
The obverse of 1880 Legal Tender Notes contains a classic bust of Daniel Webster. This marks the third $10 legal tender note featuring this legendary orator and statesman. The portrait here is positioned on the left side and is shown opposite a group of characters that includes Pocahontas. Other features on the obverse include a red Treasury seal and the serial number in blue ink.
On the reverse face of these Legal Tender Notes the denomination appears in the four corners. On the upper sides, it is shown numerically, while on the lower it appears in Roman numerals. Rows of text are presented on the right side that includes an anti-counterfeiting message. The words United States of America are also shown along with an exquisite decorative motif.
As a replacement for the Demand Note, Legal tender notes initially helped to mitigate expenses incurred by the Union during the Civil War. However, once the war ended, they continued to enter circulation for the next 109 years. If you look at this particular $10 note from 1880, you will see a bald eagle motif on the front design. When you turn the note upside down, this eagle suddenly resembles the head of a donkey. As such, they have earned the nickname jackass notes.
