Shrinking Dollar Silver Certificates

1899 Black Eagle Collection

In 1929, it was decided by the U.S. Government to "shrink" the one dollar bill by 2.61" in its overall size. The introduction of the smaller $1.00 currency notes was the culmination of a 20 year exhaustive study. In 1927, Secretary of the Treasury, Andrew W. Mellon approved new designs and conducted a vigorous advertising campaign to inform the public. The new notes were attractive and embodied new security features to help prevent counterfeiting.

This collection features a rare, large 1899 Silver Certificate and a 1929 series Silver Certificate.

Display is present in a 10" x 12" solid wood frame.
