Cogwheels meet Funnybacks in this desirable set that marks the changeover to small-size Legal Tender Notes. Once U.S. notes measured a big 7 3/8" x 3 1/8", but then in a cost-savings effort the size of paper money was reduced and the smaller notes we use today debuted. Now you can enjoy the:
- Last large-size $1 Legal Tender – from Series 1923. Classic portrait of George Washington on the face and the famed “cogwheel” design on back. Only large-size $1 Legal Tenders with this design. After the changeover, many big notes like these were redeemed and destroyed – experts believe less than 1% of all large-size notes survive today.
- First small-size $1 Legal Tender – from Series 1928. Classic portrait of George Washington on the face and the popular “Funnyback” design on back. Only small-size $1 Legal Tenders with this design. Featuring the Woods-Woodin signatures, this scarce series was printed for just 2 months. Of the 1.8 million printed, only 8,012 were released in the U.S.
