Civil War lithograph of John Howard Payne.

Reverse has E. ANTHONY BROADWAY N.Y. back mark.

John Howard Payne was born on June 9, 1791 in New York City. He was an American actor, poet, playwright, and author who had most of his theatrical career and success in London. He is today most remembered as the creator of "Home! Sweet Home!" a song he wrote in 1822 that became widely popular in the United States, Great Britain, and the English-speaking world. After his return to the United States, Payne spent time with the Cherokee Indians. He published accounts that suggested their origin as one of the Ten Lost Tribes of ancient Israel.

In 1842, Payne was appointed American Consul to Tunis, where he served for nearly 10 years until his death on April 10, 1852.  [ad]
