PENNSYLVANIA. PHILADELPHIA. Share of $10. black. No 7464. Taped on cardboard. These shares were issued to finance the program 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 photograph in this catalogue. Basically a visual history of the first 100 years of the United States. Ideal for framing. Very large format. A true piece of art.
