A classic design in United States paper money, the Educational Ace
So firmly entrenched in the minds of collectors that the mere mention of the name immediately conjures a mental image.
In addition, there are engraved portraits of Martha and George Washington separated by a numeral one which actually caused an outcry as the public felt no 1 should come between George and Martha Washington.
An important fiscal link to the circulating currency and morals of the era, one of only three denominations for this one-year type.
A classic American theme destined to highlight any collection with an executed image of history instructing youth as the central theme on the front, the educational series is considered to be one of the most undervalued and certainly iconic designs in the entire spectrum of U.S. Paper Money.
Though this note has some edge roughness, splits in the folds, and a few holes visible when backlit, its an affordable example of an iconic design.
