United States Notes were adopted for circulation during the Civil War in 1862 in denominations from One through One Thousand Dollars. The $100 denomination did not carry over when the switch was made to small size notes in 1928. The first issue came in 1966 and continued until the early 1970s when this type was discontinued. Although they are still legal tender, their red seals and serial numbers and competitive prices make them great collector’s items.
