The Specimen (Friedberg# 2413s) features the signatures of United States Treasurer William A. Julian and Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau Jr., as well as a G.F.C. Smillie-engraved portrait of Woodrow Wilson, who was US president from 1913 to 1921. The text above and below Wilson states: “This is to certify that there is on deposit in the Treasury of the United States of America one hundred thousand dollars in gold payable to bearer on demand as authorized by law.” The back is blank except for a silver-colored “SPECIMEN NOT NEGOTIABLE” printing.
