Each of the $2 Native American Legal Tender Notes offered in this product listing comes with a blue folio to house the bill. The blue folio is bi-fold with the $2 bill on the right side and a Certificate of Authenticity on the left denoting the information on the bill. Each one also comes with colorized applications on the obverse field.
The $2 bill is the second-smallest Federal Reserve Note in production today by the Treasury behind only the $1 bill. However, it is the least circulated piece of paper currency in the United States. It is so rarely used in circulation that many people still believe the $2 bill is not actually legal tender. On the plus side, the availability of $2 bills makes them one of the most popular for collectible alterations such as this.
On the obverse of $2 Native American Legal Tender Notes, you will find the image of Running Antelope in place of President Thomas Jefferson. The depiction of Running Antelope famously featured on the 1899 $5 Silver Certificate issued in the United States. It was the first time and only time an indigenous figure was featured on paper money in the United States.
Running Antelope became the head chief for the Hunkpapa tribe in 1851. His tribe is one of the seven tribes of the Lakota. He was known for his bravery in the thick of battle, as well as his oration skills and diplomatic achievements.
The reverse side of $2 Native American Legal Tender Notes comes with John Trumbulls 1818 depiction of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The image makes the $2 bill the only paper note in American circulation with two presidents on it as President John Adams is present in the portrait of the Declarations signing on the reverse.
