DEMAND NOTES – 1861. These notes are the first and earliest issue of United States currency. The term “Greenback” came from these notes.

LEGAL TENDER NOTES – 1862-1923. Also called United States Notes, this series features the famous $10 “Bison” Note of 1901.

COMPOUND INTEREST TREASURY NOTES – 1863, 1864. These rare Legal Tender Notes bore interest at 6%, compounded twice a year for a period of three years. These Federal notes were issued to stave off near bankruptcy brought on by the Civil War.

INTEREST BEARING NOTES – 1861-1865. These extremely rare notes, bore interest rates of from 5% to 7-3/10%, and were payable in one, two or three year series. The three year notes had five attached coupons, with each coupon bearing the interest for a six month period.

SILVER CERTIFICATES – 1878-1923. This extensive series was payable to the bearer on demand the equivalent amount in silver dollars at the U.S. Treasury. The stunningly well-engraved “Educational Series” in $1, $2 and $5 denominations of 1896 is one of the most highly desired series of all U.S. currency. The 1899 $5 Sioux Indian Chief note is also much sought after by collectors and investors.

TREASURY NOTES – 1890-1891. These notes, also known as Coin Notes, were redeemable in gold or silver coins. This issue was printed to cover large purchases of silver bullion by the government.

NATIONAL BANK NOTES – 1863-1929. These notes make up, by far, the most extensive series ever printed of American currency. Thousands of banks, in most States and Territories, issued notes in several denominations over three Charter Periods. These notes feature first rate engraved vignettes depicting themes relating to U.S. history.

FEDERAL RESERVE BANK NOTES – 1915, 1918. These notes were issued to coincide with the establishment of the new Federal Reserve System in late 1913. The first series was issued by only 5 of the 12 banks in the system. The reverses feature attractive engravings such as an eagle, battleship and a Columbus/Pilgrim note.

FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES - 1914, 1918. This series of Large Size notes was issued under the Federal Reserve of 1913. The difference between these notes and the Federal Reserve Bank Notes is that the Federal Reserve System issued this series, not the individual banks of the Federal Reserve. The reverses feature similar attractive vignettes as the Federal Reserve Bank Note series.

NATIONAL GOLD BANK NOTES – 1870-1875. These historic bank notes are a direct link to the California Gold Rush of 1848. Printed on a yellow hued paper (to resemble gold), the reverses have a unique design that features a group of United States gold coins in all denominations. These visually impressive notes from California are highly desired and rarely offered to the public.

GOLD CERTIFICATES – 1863-1922. With reverses of a brilliant golden orange, this long running series of United States notes evokes memories of a time when gold was redeemable for paper. The $20 Gold Certificate of 1905 (the “Technicolor” note) is highly sought after due to its vivid coloring of black, white, gold and red.
