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 at just £75.00 each.
