All currency issued by The United States in 1869 had a very unique multi-colored paper. Today collectors refer to them as “rainbow’ notes.
In 1869, the $2 United States Note was redesigned with the now familiar portrait of Thomas Jefferson to the left and a vignette of the United States Capital in the center. Although this note is technically a United Stated Note, Treasury Note appeared on it instead of United States Note.
Considered as one of the most beautiful banknotes in history. The artists of the Merrick Mint have used an advanced technology over this modern uncirculated United States $2 bill, enhancing it with images from the 1869 $2 Bill Thomas Jefferson Rainbow Multi-Colored Banknote, to create this collectible work of art.
