Fourth Issue Fractional Currency Notes
These notes were printed between July 14, 1869 and February 16, 1875. Each note will be signed by Allison and Spinner. All fourth issue fractional notes have a red or green treasury seal. They were the first fractional series to incorporate that design element. This is also the first series to issue a fifteen cent fractional note. A prior fifteen cent note had been designed, but it was never issued. Sadly, as a general rule, all fourth issue fractional notes are very common. However, there are some rare varieties that can be worth more money. Any time we refer to rare varieties, the note itself whether rare or common, has to be in perfect condition to have a collector value of more than $100.
