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 switched over 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 collector’s items. The front of these $2 bills features President Thomas Jefferson, as well as the third and final version of the obligation, which states “This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private.”
Series 1963 $2 United States Notes were printed in fairly small numbers by today's standards, and saw heavy usage until the type was discontinued in the 1960s. These Almost Uncirculated $2 Red Seals are popular with collectors!
