R.M. Bowne, Glen Cove,
Long Island


Seldom Seen Nassau County, Long Island Change Bill

Long Island scrip notes are infrequently seen, particularly from Nassau County, and this one is ‘scarce’. Glen Cove was a mansion laden locale favored by the ultra-wealthy at the time and decades to follow. Llithographed by Henry Siebert, Green protector with seated liberty coin designs. Lower left are goods including sugar and tea. Lower right is a steamer.
