Description

Description: This is an unusual format for macerated money: a small cat with a green silk ribbon tied around its neck is snugged inside a boot. The paper label is still affixed to the ‘sole’ of the boot, and states: "Made of U.S. National Greenbacks, redeemed and macerated at the U.S. Treasury. Estimated $4,000…" It appears to have been manufactured in the late 19th or early 20th century. Measures 3 1/4" high and 4" long. Item #DA00080

Condition: The silk ribbon is a little tattered, and there is some wear to the high spots. Otherwise very good.
