Fractional currency came into existence during the time of the Civil War as many people began to hoard their coinage. The Government’s response was to issue paper money for denominations under $1, or fractionals. These notes vary from 3 cents to 50 cents and were issued from 1862 through 1876. They remained in circulation for many years thereafter.
