Civil War:

THE OLD CONTINENTAL AND THE NEW GREENBACK DOLLAR.

[np: nd, ca 1862] 8pp, caption title [as issued]. Light wear, Good+. The anonymous author seeks to reassure his friend, "an opponent of the Administration" but "an uncompromising friend of the Federal Constitution and the Union," that Secretary Chase's fiscal policies do not justify his "gloomy forebodings." To reassure him, the author refutes the analogy between the old Continental dollar and the new greenback currency. "Have faith in the Union...The greenback shall pay your debts, and purchase you all the comforts and luxuries you will ever need or desire." Bartlett 3631. 429 NUC 0064996 [9]. Sabin 57122 [slightly different title]. Not in Nevins, Eberstadt, Decker, LCP.
