Third Issue Fractional Currency Notes
There are two things you should notice about these fractional notes. First, you can see that a three cent denomination was issued. This is the only series that used such a low denomination. You might also notice that all of the notes higher than three cents are all signed by banking officers. These were the first notes from the fractional series to include officer signatures. All third series notes were printed between December 5, 1864 and August 16, 1869. This is the only series to be used during and after the Civil War. Most of these bank notes are extremely common because as a type, millions upon millions were printed. However, our guide below tells you what to look for to determine if you have one of the rare exceptions.
