The rare denomination in the series and awfully underpriced in the catalogue. Louis Kossuth was a Hungarian statesman, the foremost leader of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848-1849. The Hungarian Fund notes were an attempt to raise funds in the United States to back their uprising. Condition: Extremeley fine to about uncirculated. Cashier pinhole in top corner,which is usual for this note. Some ageing signs as it is from 1852 - 165 years old- but no harsh folds.
