In full: "Pay to N.K. Whitney or bearer three DOLLARS on demand." Slightly soiled. BRIGHAM YOUNG (1801-1877), as President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, authorized the printing of this complete set of Salt Lake City Valley notes, which were originally payable to NEWELL K. WHITNEY (1795-1850), a Trustee and Bishop of the Church. These notes, printed by Young's nephew, Brigham H. Young, were dated January 20, 1849, except for the 25-cent notes, which were printed on March 28, 1849 but never signed or issued. Only the 50-cent note contains complete signatures of President Young and First Counselor HEBER C. KIMBALL (1801-1868). The notes, intended to internalize money to fuel Young's powerful financial cooperative, were endorsed by Clerk THOMAS BULLOCK (1816-1885). On January 23, 1848, while in Nauvoo, Illinois, President Young, along with JOHN TAYLOR (1808-1887), designed the seal of the Twelve Apostles that was embossed on each valley note. The seal is detailed with 16 initials, "PSTAPCJCLDSLDATW", which stand for "Private Seal of the Twelve Apostles, Priests of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in the Last Dispensation, All Over the World". Taylor would later succeed Young as the Mormons' third President and spiritual leader. The Mormons later chose to print their currency rather than continuing the arduous task of hand writing the notes. Only nine months after this paper currency, which was 80 percent backed by the Mormon treasury's gold dust, was issued, it would be replaced with minted coins. During the currency exchange, very few notes escaped being burned by Bullock. Out of the $6,500 in existence, over half of the notes were destroyed; uncirculated notes like this set, lost any potential monetary value so were spared from the flames and retained by the Mormon church. Young, a farmer and house painter, had joined the Church's most successful mission in England (1839-1841). Young had become the second President of the Church in 1847, three years after its founder, Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. (1805-1844), was murdered on June 27, 1844. During the interim, Young directed the Church's affairs and prepared the Saints to migrate to the Great Salt Lake Valley (1846-1847). Once in Utah, he established aggressive immigration and colonization programs that gathered European converts and established Mormon settlements throughout the Western U.S. Young also served as Governor of the Mormon's provincial "State of Deseret" (1849-1850) and of the Territory of Utah (1850-1857). Kimball, who had been an original member of the Council of the Twelve under Smith, served as First Counselor to President Young from 1847-1868. Five items. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 33½x24.
