Friedberg 215. 1886 $1 Silver Certificate. PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. These Rosecrans-Jordan signed 1886 notes were the first $1 Silver Certificates issued. They display the portrait of First Lady Martha Washington at the left end of the note while a large die counter 1 is at right. A round red Treasury Seal is to the lower right of center. The presently offered example displays four boardwalk margins and crisp, creamy white paper that is wholly original. The intricately designed green printed back displays vivid detail and is well centered. PMG has graded 17 examples of this catalog number at this grade level but none finer. Silver Certificates, the successors to Silver Certificates of Deposit, were born under the Bland-Allison Act of February 28, 1878, the same legislation that created what we now call the Morgan silver dollar. Soon after that legislation, Silver Certificates of Deposit (see lot 1035) were made, but in relatively small numbers, in denominations from $10 to $1,000. These were the Series of 1878 and 1880.<br style="box-sizing:border-box;color:#333333;font-family:Avenir, Roboto, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;background-color:#ffffff;" /><br style="box-sizing:border-box;color:#333333;font-family:Avenir, Roboto, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;background-color:#ffffff;" />Beginning with the Series of 1886, as here, these notes were designated only as Silver Certificates and were circulated in quantity. The Act of August 4, 1886, authorized these, after which this class of note was made in very large quantities, including the new $1, $2, and $5 denominations. Vast quantities of Morgan dollars, put up in cloth bags of 1,000 coins each, continued to accumulate as backing for these bills. The Series of 1886 notes were popular, as were the various later series, some of which had very beautiful designs.<br style="box-sizing:border-box;color:#333333;font-family:Avenir, Roboto, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;background-color:#ffffff;" /><br style="box-sizing:border-box;color:#333333;font-family:Avenir, Roboto, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;background-color:#ffffff;" />This initial $1 note depicts Martha Washington, engraved by Charles Burt. Numismatists often call these "Martha notes." This was the first time that a First Lady of the United States appeared on federal paper money. The same portrait of Mrs. Washington was used later on the Series of 1891 Silver Certificates, followed by the Series of 1896 "Educational Notes." All have blue serial numbers beginning with B. Sizes and colors of the Treasury Seal vary. The back, ornately engraved, includes redemption information at the center, essentially stating that it could be spent for any purpose.
