    Description

    Peter Cooper & Samuel Cary: A Very Rare Jugate "Bank Note" Picturing the 1876 Greenback Party Candidates. Peter Cooper, "the friend of the working man, the protector of the poor and distressed," was a prominent industrialist, charitable benefactor, and inventor. He designed the "Tom Thumb," the earliest American steam locomotive, and founded the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City. A longtime supporter of social justice causes, he accepted the Greenback nomination at age 85- the oldest person ever nominated for president by a political party. This rare "bill" sports a jugate of the running mates and great political content. 7.375" x 3.125" and in crisp, virtually mint condition, with one barely detectable fine vertical crease in center.
