A numismatic favorite and one of the first notes most collectors acquire when starting a large-size type collections. This 1899 “Chief” notes show a central portrait of what is widely accepted as Running Antelope of the Sioux. The series is one that replaced the short lived “Educational Series” as the public demanded a more clearly denominated bill which this design certainly addressed. Ample white space gives more contrast to the design features and bold blue overprints would become standard fare on Silver Certificates until their demise in the mid-20th century. Large even borders and original paper are both observed and help confirm the lofty Gem designation.
