Hold a genuine piece of history with this Crisp Unused bank note dating from before the Civil War! Back then, state-chartered banks issued America’s paper currency – today, known as Obsolete Bank Notes.

Printed in the 1850s for the Canal Bank of New Orleans, these $10 remainder notes are from original cut sheets and were never issued. This bank was chartered in 1831 to finance the construction of a navigable canal that would run from Rampart Street to Lake Pontchartrain. Each note features a finely detailed engraving of theCanal Bank building, along with a depiction of a paddle wheel steamer, a spread-winged eagle with shield and an allegorical figure holding a fasces and shield. The back shows an ornate orange design. Still Crisp Unused after more than 160 years, these pieces have been handpicked by our experts for quality, and each comes in a protective hard plastic holder that offers a crystal-clear view of both sides. Add great historical interest to your collection, with this Obsolete Bank Note.
