Collecting Fractional Currency


Multi-Media Summary

Coinage for commerce virtually disappeared during the Civil War as no one wanted to spend the money they had and the mints were unable to keep up production. A series of paper money notes were issued in denominations from three cents to 50 cents. Hear the story and see examples of these notes that continued into the 1870's and are some of the most affordable examples of early United States paper money. David Stitely is a collector and researcher who speaks at coin clubs and has a serious collector of these notes. Speaker(s): David Stitely.
