1901 $10 Legal Tender Bison Currency Note Fine
Stay Ahead of the Stampeding Demand for This Bison!
Arguably one of the most beloved U.S. currency bank notes of all time, this $10 Legal Tender Bison Note from the 1901 series was so popular that the image was re-used on the 30-cent postage stamp in 1923 and again on a $1 Military Payment Certificate issued to troops during the Vietnam War! Today, this note currently ranks as #6 in the book 100 Greatest American Currency Notes, and when you study the elaborate designs you’ll know why.
Symbolizing America’s frontier spirt, this note depicts a shaggy North American Bison. While this “Giant of the Plains” is pictured in his native habitat, the model used for the note was actually a captive buffo named “Pablo” who was living out his days at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. Pablo is flanked by the vignettes of Captain Meriwether Lewis and his close friend Lieutenant William Clark, the famous leaders of the Lewis & Clark Expedition that explored the Louisiana Purchase from 1804-1806 and came across these shaggy beasts during their journey. The note’s back features Columbia, the female personification of the United States. The note’s bold red seals and numbers serve as striking contrast to images.
This classic large-sized “horse blanket” note has become more difficult to find with every passing day as the demand continues to outpace a small supply. In fact, paper money scholars estimate that only 3,000 to 4,500 Bison Currency Notes exist today in any condition!
