Available from 1915 to 1934, the Federal Reserve Bank Note was one of the shortest-lived forms of paper money issued in the United States. The notes were issued in three series: 1915, 1918, and 1929. That final release in 1929 introduced the small-sized format, with the previous two being the historic large-sized format. Right now, you can get Very Fine 1918 $2 Federal Reserve Bank Notes online at Provident Metals.

With your purchase of a 1918 $2 Federal Reserve Bank Note in this Provident Metals listing, you will receive a note that is in Very Fine condition and housed inside of a plastic currency sleeve. Notes with a Very Fine grade show light-to-mild soiling, slight rounding on the corners, and numerous fold lines. Overall, the notes are free of major detractions.

Please bear in mind the condition of your notes could match if you buy more than one. Additionally, Federal Reserve Bank Notes are backed individually by the branch bank that released the notes into circulation. You will find this name on the obverse and you could get notes with the same or varied names on the obverse if you buy several.


The obverse of the 1918 $2 Federal Reserve Bank Note features an effigy of President Thomas Jefferson. The third President of the United States of America, Jeffersons lasting legacy is the Louisiana Purchase, a move that doubled the size of the United States overnight. You will notice the printed name of a Federal Reserve branch bank on this side. For example, Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Other branches include the Richmond, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Minneapolis, Dallas, and San Francisco banks.


On the reverse is the image of a dreadnaught battleship from the New York Class of the United States Navy. Introduced in 1911, the New York Class eventually consisted of only two vessels, the USS New York and the USS Texas.


Federal Reserve Bank Notes in the 1918 Series included $1, $2, and $50 denominations. These were issued in 1918 in response to the Pittman Act and the temporary suspension of US Silver Certificates as a result of the act.
