All the notes from this group were damaged by their exposure to the weather. This bill is approximately 3.75" x 1.5" in size and irregular in shape. It features a near-complete Hamilton portrait, two partial serial numbers, and a near-complete San Francisco "L" Reserve Bank designation.Serial #L47621840A which has been certified and authenticated according to the serial number.
