Civil War Antique Paper Money - Green Back 10 cents
During the Civil War, coins were difficult to come by as people tended to safeguard small change. Stamps were used as a substitute but were fragile so the U.S. government started making small-value paper money which at first resembled stamps.
Washington is portraited on this 10-cent stamp. Nice specimen - Greenback type note made between 1863 and 1867 - still a U.S. legal tender!
- Approximately 3 1/4" x 1 3/4"
- Comes in sturdy clear plastic sleeve
- This is an original note, not a reproduction
- Antique money is NON-RETURNABLE
