The series 1899 One Dollar Silver Certificate, called affectionately, The Black Eagle, is one of the last "large size" bills printed, making it a must-have for all collectors.
The note was printed from 1899 into the 1920's and was replaced by the 1923 series note. Black Eagle is considered one of the most attractive bills in the United State, with its Spread-Winged American Eagle holding a U.S. Flag in its Talons, and miniature portraits of Presidents Lincoln and Grant below it.
The only piece of U.S. currency ever issued that displays the portraits of two different Presidents - Abraham Lincoln & Ulysses S. Grant.
