Friedberg 223. 1891 $1 Silver Certificate. PMG Gem Uncirculated 65 EPQ. Courtesy Autograph. Vividly printed inks and four broad, evenly spaced margins are featured on this Gem Series of 1891 $1 Silver Certificate. The note was courtesy autographed by United States Treasurer Daniel Nash Morgan. His autograph is neatly penned just above his engraved signature. What makes this note even more fascinating is that Morgan went on to inscribe the back of the note to famed collector Albert A. Grinnell. The back inscription reads in part "Presented to Mr. Albert A. Grinnell Detroit, Michigan April 15, 1929."Morgan goes on to list his Treasurer title and dates of service and appointment. This is one of the most fascinating Courtesy Autographs we have encountered as it ties in to one of the most famed names in the history of United States currency collecting. Grinnell, the proprietor of music stores in the Detroit area, was the pre-eminent paper money collector of his era.<br style="box-sizing:border-box;color:#333333;font-family:Avenir, Roboto, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;background-color:#ffffff;" />Daniel Nash Morgan was born in Newtown, Connecticut on August 18, 1844. As a young man he operated a family owned store, later taking on a partner and operating as Morgan & Booth. In 1879 he became president of the City National Bank of Bridgeport, Connecticut. In 1893 President Grover Cleveland named him treasurer of the United States, a position he held from June 1, 1893, to June 30, 1897. He served under both Cleveland and William McKinley. He is remembered as warmly welcoming many people who wanted souvenir autographs. After his tenure as treasurer, Morgan failed in a bid to become governor of Connecticut in 1898. He died on May 30, 1931, 12 days after being hit by an automobile. <em>From our (Bowers & Ruddys) sale of June 1976, lot 1447; Heritages sale of January 1997, lot 7309; Caribbean Sun Gold sale of November 1997; Lyn Knights sale of June 1998; lot 232; Lyn Knights sale of June 2000; lot 326. </em>
