FRACTIONAL CURRENCIES
Brief History

Fractional currencies were introduced during the Civil War.

They were issued from August 21, 1862 to 15 February 1876.

These notes were issued in denominations of:

3 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 15 cent, 25 cent and 50 cents.

The U.S. government hoarded coins for their bullion value and stopped exchanging paper money for silver and gold coins.

U.S. Treasurer Francis E. Spinner helped create a solution to the coin shortage with the creation of postage currency, which later led into Fractional Currency.

The introduction of these notes played a key role in economy during the Civil War.

This note was in two other collections before I obtained it. This bill is about 150 years old and has been in storage for the last 40 years. I was a collector back then and purchased a lot of items and then got too busy and packed everything away. I recently rediscovered this bill and 50+ others and had many of them sent away for grading so I could sell them with confidence. Now that I am disabled, I could use the money and am selling everything.

This note is in very collectible shape.

It is very nice but does not have the premium of an uncirculated note.

No need to worry about the authenticity or quality

And

You don't have to take my word for it either.

You just have to trust PCGS.
