Year: March 3, 1863

Denomination: Five Cents

Signatures: None

Portrait: George Washington

Front Text: Furnished Only By The Assistant Treasurers and designated Depositaries of the United States – United States Five Cents Fractional Currency – Receivable for all United States Stamps – Act Approved March 3, 1865 – Engraved and Printed at the Treasury Department

Back Text: Exchangeable for United States Notes by the Assistant Treasurers and designated Depositaries of the U.S. in sums not less than THREE DOLLARS, Receivable in payment of all dues to the United States less than Five Dollars Except Customs.

What’s Rare: There are four different varieties for this piece of fractional currency. The type that has a surcharge that reads “R-18-63” on the back corners is by far the rarest. Others can certainly still be very collectible, they just have to be in uncirculated condition.
