    Agree with Steve, looks easily VF, though the pics are a bit small... if it's an F it's the nicest F in the history of grading...

    I have never heard of a $1 bill being called a sawhorse. The old Tens were called sawbucks and the Twenty's a double sawbuck.

    Some larger scans would be helpful in narrowing down more details :)

    It’s called that because of the back design. That big X looks like some 2X4’s nailed together like a carpenter made a sawhorse.

    Ten dollar bills had that and they were called Sawbucks. Twenties were called double sawbucks. I noted that I have never heard the term sawhorse used for the $1 bill.

    Two terms that generally mean the same thing. The $10 note gets its nickname from the Roman Numeral X (10) in the corners.

    It's coming from ligonier pa. Just a couple hours from me. Checked the tracking and it's in Oklahoma city. Now I could be wrong but I think it shoulda made a left turn at Albuquerque. Lol
