1862-1876 Fractional Currency Set (6 pieces)

1862-1876 Fractional Currency Set (6 pieces)

Here’s your chance to own a set of 6 scarce, genuine notes from the Civil War era. These handsome notes were originally created to solve widespread coin hoarding by the public after the Civil War’s start. Then, it was nearly impossible for merchants to make change. So the U.S. government authorized paper notes with values less than a dollar called Fractional Currency. Beginning in 1862, these sought-after notes were produced for fourteen years in six different denominations: 3¢, 5¢, 10¢, 15¢, 25¢ and 50¢.

Out of the millions of Fractional Currency notes originally issued, over 99% have been redeemed and destroyed. Fortunately, with this historically significant set, you’ll receive 6 notes, one of every denomination issued – including the scarcest denomination – the 15¢ note! Plus, our convenient payment plan makes owning this scarce set even more affordable. Today the surviving notes are genuine artifacts of a dramatic chapter in America’s history.
