Washington Fractional Currency
1863-1867 5 Cent 2nd Issue
Fractional Currency was issued by the United States from 1862 to 1875. During the Civil War, the hoarding of coins required the U.S. Government to issue the making of this interesting short-lived series of notes. Notes were issued in denominations of 3, 5, 10, 15, 25, and 50 cents. There were 28 different, major types of these unusual notes issued. They remain legal tender to this day.
The front of this 5 cent, 2nd issue note features a portrait of President George Washington, set in an oval frame. The reverse features a bold number five with beautiful, intricate detailing that indicates the value of the note.
Note sold in a deluxe currency protective sleeve.
