Can we get a visual match? That's always more interesting. Doesn't have to be something you own.

these large green seals on the legal CD's are unique, aren't they?

I can't think of any issued currency that has one like that. Anyone else know for sure?

so, do you consider the Legal CD's to be "issued currency?"
what about seven-thirties?
demand notes?
the refunding certificates?
LOL

so, about these green seal CD's .. in the 1870's, 1880's there were lots of national banks ... as collectors here all know ...
now, these national bank issued notes that were usually not legal tender, but they were guaranteed to be exchangeable for legal tender ...
a national bank would buy interest bearing bonds and deposit them with the treasury and issue national bank notes against them ...
but they also had to have "reserves" to redeem their own notes rather than appeal to the treasury holding the bonds ...
so they had stockpiles of Legal Tender notes ...
but little National Banks would deposit their legal tender notes with big National Banks ...
big National Bank ended up with hoards of these things ...
so the government issued Legal Tender CD's (like the one pictured above) so that Big National Bank could hold onto them and save space ...
the CD's did not pay interest

in the 1870's legal tender notes could not be exchanged for gold coin, so keeping your reserves in the form of gold coin was a big no-no for a successful banker ...
Gold certificates existed then but paying them outside the banking system was unheard of

Young Collector...thanks for sharing research..good stuff. Greg’s Eagle looks like a $1 Federal Reserve Bank Note. Here’s two more. Good luck. Where in the collecting world is Intaglio and Road King ?

Mike, the eagle on that $1 FRN looks similar but it's actually not a match. Keep looking and think ... gold.

I have always thought of the $20 national as a "design fail".
Am I the only one who thinks that the guy from the battle of Lexington is shooting at Loyalty?

I don't actually know of any matches as my collection of obsoletes is thin ... any match counts as a Yoda-like accomplishment
