FRACTIONAL CURRENCY SHIELD ADVERTISER

While poking around the Library of Congress site I came across an unusual item I'm pretty sure I've never seen before - a U.S. Fractional Currency Shield printed with advertising. I was unable to locate a reference to it on the Newman Numismatic Portal. Has one of these been documented in numismatic literature or been sold in a numismatic auction? -Editor
