The design also features an illustration of several characters on the right side as well as the Treasury seal in red ink. The serial number is in blue ink and appears on both the upper and lower side of the note.
The reverse side of these Legal Tender Notes contains denomination information. In the upper corners, the denomination is shown numerically.

The $10 large format legal tender notes were first issued in 1862 and featured Abraham Lincoln. Then for the next three series (1869, 1875, 1880), Daniel Webster was depicted. Then in 1901, Webster was replaced with a Lewis and Clark design. The final large format design in this denomination arrived in 1923 and featured a portrait of the 7th US President, Andrew Jackson.
