Brussels, BelgiumLive Auction
Description: 18 January 1876 PENNSYLVANIA. PHILADELPHIA. Share of $10. black. No 8894. Rather wrinkled paper. These shares were issued to finance the programme of exhibitions and celebrations to mark the centenary of the United States. The superb copper-engraving is of themes from the nation's history - too much to describe here - just see the large photograph in this catalogue. Basically a visual history of the first 100 years of the United States. Ideal for framing. Very large format (66x53cm). A true piece of art. Rarity 8.
