Fractional currency became necessary as our country approached the beginning of the Civil War.

As citizens began holding onto silver and gold coinage it became increasingly harder to, “make change”, in everyday transactions. The solution was fractional currency notes. They range in denominations from 3 to 50 cent. I have put a few samples below but keep in mind that there are more versions out there for different years.

I’m sure there are some interesting symbols on these bills that may mean more to those who study deeper meanings.
