At one time it was perfectly legal for any bank, company, or even individual to issue paper money. The money was only as good as the reputation of the issuer. This practice was outlawed when the U.S. government started issuing its own paper money regularly, during the Civil War.

This Two Dollar Note was issued by the Bank of Virginia and features Washington seated on both ends of the note.
