Comments

The front of the 1897 issue was green like the $2 note. It was decided in 1898 to change the tint of the $1 note to avoid confusion with the $2.
On the reverse there are two varieties with the left and right ONEs either inward or outward.

Example of this type:
HVB Stiftung Geldscheinsammlung München
