United States Large Notes
These are my United States Large size notes. Large size notes are notes that
were produced before 1928. They were quite a bit bigger then the average bills
that you can find today. There are also some silver certificates listed below.
They worked the same as regular currency but you could also take these to a
bank and redeem them for one dollar in silver. The same applies to the gold
certificates except instead of getting silver, you get gold. You can click on any
picture to bring up a larger size of the note.
