Small Size

On July 10, 1929, after years of discussions, the first of the current, reduced size notes were placed in circulation. In order to cut costs on printing paper money, it was decided that millions of dollars could be saved if currency was reduced 25% in size. Also, it was a way for the government to have more uniformity in the look of its currency.
