United States Notes were among the oldest types of circulating U.S. Currency introduced during the Civil War. Also known as Legal Tender Notes, these notes were direct obligations of the U.S. Government. The first Legal Tender Note issued was authorized under a congressional act of February 25, 1862, with the first issue carrying the date March 10, 1862. In 1923 the last large size currency issued were the one dollar and the ten dollar series value notes. Legal Tender Notes were the longest series of U.S. Currency issued.
