A perfect match to the other two denominations we are offering in the same grade for this short tenured series offered and a design that certainly ranks among the most desirable of Federally Issued United States currency. The title of the engraving is “Science Presents Steam and Agriculture, to Commerce and Manufacture,” being depicted by allegorical figures at center. Wonderful pillar styling at left and right with laurel leaves arching above the central theme. Dual portrait vignettes at back which is standard for this 1896 series and these Two Dollar notes proudly display the inventors Robert Fulton and Samuel F.B. Morse. All the quality that would be called for at the Gem level is seen here from nicely embossed overprints to the even borders.
