Summary

Spencer M. Clark, Supervisor of the Currency Bureau placed his own likeness on the five-cent U.S. Fractional currency note leading directly to legislation prohibiting the depiction of any living person on U.S. currency. Fractional Currency was introduced by the United States Federal Government following the Civil War. These notes were in use between 21 August 1862 and 15 February 1876, and could be redeemed by the U.S. Postal Service for the face value in postage stamps. Fractional notes were issued in 3, 5, 10, 15, 25, and 50 cent denominations.
