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 5¢ note is from the 1863-1867 Second Issue of fractional currency. The face of the note bears a portrait of George Washington in a bronze oval frame, and the back of the note is brown.
