Due to widespread hoarding of coins during the Civil War era, Congress authorized the printing of fractional currency notes (with values less than a dollar) from 1862-1876. This historic 10¢ note is from the 1874-1876 Fifth Issue of fractional currency. The face of the note bears a portrait of William M. Meredith, secretary of the treasury during 1849-1850, and features a red Treasury Seal with a long, thin key. Add this precious Civil War–era note to your own collection.
