Western Exchange $2 Note

SKU 28244

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 Western Exchange Fire and Marine Insurance Company from Omaha City, Nebraska in the late 1850s.
