1914 10 Dollar Bill was Printed on Hemp Paper and Portrays Farmers Plowing Hemp

Did you know that the 1914 10 Dollar Bill was printed on Hemp Paper and that the picture on the back displays farmers plowing hemp? These were real hemp dollars!

1914 10 Dollar Bill

This video highlights a 1914 series $10 bill of a hemp harvest that is printed ‘right on the money.’ This paper was also made of hemp. The first Federal Reserve Bank notes were issued in 1914.

Who is on the 10 Dollar Bill?

This $10 bill bears the signature of Andrew Mellon, the Secretary of the Treasury under multiple presidential administrations.

Mellon was also the head of several oil companies and banks. Mellon was the uncle of Harry Anslinger, the first leader of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 1931-1961.

Anslinger was the main cheerleader of the Reefer Madness misinformation campaign and the primary person responsible for marijuana prohibition.

10 Dollar Bill Back

“The back was designed by Clair Aubrey Huston; Farming, a scene in Manchester Township, York County, Pennsylvania, was engraved by Marcus W Baldwin; Industry, a mill in Joliet, Illinois, was engraved by HL Chorlton. The first day of issue was November 16, 1914.”

Note that Pennsylvania produced hemp through the 1900’s, and the crop depicted on the currency is too tall to be wheat or flax, so it’s rather obvious that it’s hemp.

The “Hemp 10 Dollar Bill” is available in the following series:

  • Large-Size Ten Dollar Note, Federal Reserve Note, Series 1914/Red Seal
