Celebrities On Broken Banknotes

Sometimes celebrities were featured on broken bank notes. Shown below, is an R-7 note from Plymouth, IN with the image of Jenny Lind. Jenny Lind was a famous Swedish opera singer from the 1800's and her image can be found on several notes. She came on tour to the United States in 1850 (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jenny_Lind) and so the following note is dated July 15, 1853, after her well received reception.

And, of course, Elvis was featured on some broken banknotes also. I mean that goes without saying.
