Large format $10 legal tender notes were printed from 1862 until 1927. The final series was the 1923 issue featuring Andrew Jackson.

On the obverse of 1862 Legal Tender Notes, there is a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. This effigy is located on the left side with Lincoln facing toward the right.

Also, decorating the entire border of the obverse is the Roman numeral X.
The reverse of these Legal Tender Notes features denomination and obligation information. Unlike most notes, the denomination is not featured in the corners here.
