Get a large-size and small-size transition set of the longest-lived type of U.S. paper money! Introduced in 1862 during the Civil War, Legal Tender Notes were the first widely used federal currency and were issued in the large-size format until the 1920s and then in the small size until 1969. This historic set gives you the last large-size $1 Legal Tender Note (Series 1923) and the first small-size $1 Legal Tender Note (Series 1928).

Issued for over a century, Legal Tender Notes feature red Treasury seals and serial numbers. When introduced during the Civil War, they were called “greenbacks” for the color of their backs, and to differentiate them from “blueback” Confederate Notes. These $1 bills bear a familiar image of George Washington, but the backs feature ornate motifs from the past. The large-size 1923 note has the famous “cogwheel” design while the small-size 1928 note bears the popular “funnyback” design.
