Mark M. writes: I just read that there were 3 women on U.S. currency, Martha Washington, Pocahontas, and of course Susan B. Anthony. I know of the Susan B Anthony dollar but what currency were the other two on?
Martha Washington is on the front of the 1886 $1 Silver Certificate AND on the back of the 1896 Silver Certificate.
Pocahontas appears on the United States Note series of 1869-1878 in the vingette on the right of the front of the note, Pocahontas Presented at Court. On the left is a portrait of Daniel Webster. There is a small eagle in the center. If the note is inverted, the eagle takes on the appearance of a jackass, which became the nickname for this $10 note.
