To answer Pfc's question, the 1896 series of banknotes are extremely prized by collectors. The most desirable are the $5 banknotes which, if in pristine condition, can sell for $8000. The $1 and $2 notes are worth a few hundred dollars apiece.

This 'educational series of banknotess, it was hoped, would expose those who lived in rural areas--far away from any museums--to the concept of fine arts.

People had lofty ambitions back then...
