Hungary, Hungarian Fund 5 Dollars 1852 PS137A
In 1849, in tune with the revolutionary times in Europe, Lajos Kossuth issued his famous Hungarian Declaration of Independence, seeking to break away from the Austrian Hapsburg Empire. He eventually fled Hungary and ended up in the United States where a Hungarian Fund was established to raise money for the fight for independence. These 5 dollars were issued in 1852 and are beautifully printed on one side only with Kossuth standing to the left and an allegorical woman to the right (PS137A) The notes were repayable one year after the establishment of an independent Hungarian Government. Lovely attractive notes in Crisp EF/GEF.
