1869 One Dollar United States Note (Legal Tender)

The Series 1869 One Dollar United States Note (Legal Tender) note is the second one dollar large note produced by the federal government and it is the first of four similar notes produced between 1869 and 1923. All notes (1869, 1874 to 1878, 1880 and 1917) have similar vignettes and a portrait of George Washington at the center along with a vignette of Christopher Columbus discovering America on the left side.

1874-1878 One Dollar United States Note (Legal Tender)

The Series 1874-1878 One Dollar United States Note (Legal Tender) is the second in the four-major versions of this design type. The four designs are the 1869, 1874-1878, 1880 and the 1917. This design did away with the colorful rainbow colors of the 1869 note and this series has a different back design that remained unchanged for the rest run. The major features on the front remained the same as earlier versions with George Washington’s portrait in the center and Columbus’ discovery of America on the left top. The other major change included a smaller red spiked seal and that the seal was moved to the left of Washington’s portrait. On the left is a stylized “ONE DOLLAR” surrounded by a red decorated oval. Overall the design is distinctive but a little busy. The reverse is dominated by a large “X” the has “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” printed on it.

1880 One Dollar United States Note (Legal Tender)

The Series 1880 One Dollar United States Note (Legal Tender) is the third example of the four-major versions of this design type. The four designs are the 1869, 1874-1878, 1880 and the 1917. This design did away with the stylized “ONE DOLLAR” on the right side as seen in the 1874-1878 notes and replaced it with several versions of the Treasury seal. All notes are dated 1880 and have the familiar Washington’s portrait in the center and Columbus’ discovery of America on the left top. The back is the same as those found on the 1874-1878 and 1917 versions of the note. Overall this design is a little less “busy” than the design that proceeded it and a little busier than the later 1917 series.
