HISTORY OF FRACTIONAL CURRENCY
During the early stages of the Civil War, the Union was not faring well and they needed to finance the cost of the war by borrowing money. Uncertainty of the outcome of the war combined with the fact that the currency was not backed by silver or gold led to a lack of confidence in US currency and a subsequent hoarding of coins. This shortage of coinage made trade very difficult.
On July 17,1862,Congress authorized the use of postage stamps to satisfy debts of less than $5.00. Stamps, however,were fragile and not easily used as currency. This period also saw the use of encased postage to solve the problems associated with the coinage shortage. Neither was a long term solution to the problem.
Between August 21,1862 and February 15, 1876the governmentreleased five issuespaper fractional currency in denominationsfrom 3 cents to 50 cents. When silver from the Comstock Lode was mined, there was a flood of new silver that drovesilver bullion prices down below the face value of coins which insured that they could be used in circulation again.
