Description:  The fifty dollar bill shown below is extremely rare.  It is currently thought that only two are known to exist.  These interest bearing notes have a unique color and layout that is not seen on any other United States paper money.  These notes look much more like Confederate or obsolete bank issues than they do federal paper money.

A small portrait of Andrew Jackson is printed on the left hand side of the bill and Salmon P Chase is on the right hand side of the bill.  The central vignette shows a seated woman with a sword; she is supposed to represent justice.

Variations:  There are no important varieties for this issue.
