United States Notes were adopted for circulation during the Civil War in 1862 in denominations from One through One Thousand Dollars. The $2 denomination remained when we converted to small size notes in 1928 and continued until the early 1960s when the denomination was discontinued. The deuce was revived in 1976 as a Federal Reserve Note. Although they are still legal tender, their red seals and serial numbers make them great collectors items.
Series 1928-A $2 United States Notes had a relatively low number printed (less than 47 million), and saw heavy usage during the Great Depression. This note is much more elusive than the 1928-C and later issues!
