Notes left on MPC are pretty cool, especially dated examples like yours

Good job @lettow

These were printed by Continental Banknote Company in New York in 1866 and sold to Irish immigrants to raise funds for the rebellion against the British.
The main vignette is of Erin beckoning to the Irish soldier from the American Civil War to take up and bear arms in Ireland
This portrait is of Wolfe Tone, an 18th century Irish nationalist.
Curiously when Ireland became independent in 1922 these notes were NOT redeemed, but the ones that were more like bonds with "Republic of Ireland" also printed by Continental Banknote and sold from 1866-1919 were redeemed via an office of the Irish government in New York in the late 1920s- for bonds that were payable in the late 1930s.
This note and the bonds were issued by competing factions of the Fenian Brotherhood. They did fund the establishment of a nation, via the Fenian raids into Canada in 1866-7 - the British authorities there decided that the colonies in N. America needed to be unified as a political unit that became Canada.
Curiously the lady tractor driver was a known person, Liang Jun. She passed away last year aged 90 years old.
More from Norlin Airlann.
Interesting, she even has a wiki page.
I traveled there in February 2020! It is such a nice country! The people are very friendly and the land is beautiful. That bill is super nice as well! I thought the stories from this king were very interesting! Isn't he actually living in Germany?
