Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 13 Nov 2013 at 06:00:14 (UTC)


Reason
High quality, very high EV (greater EV viewed as a set). I am re-nominating this complete set of United States Fractional currency. The last nomination was unopposed, but came up one vote short for promotion. The main article in which these images are highlighted was reworked, developed, and expanded specifically to highlight this numismatic reference set and to highlight items from the Smithsonian Institution collection. Working with the original files since the last nomination, the image sizes have been increased and the crop tightened.

This set nomination is a complete type reference set of U.S. Fractional Currency representing each significant design change. The United States issued Fractional currency between 1862 and 1876 in denominations of 3, 5, 10, 15, 25, and 50 cents. Across the five issuing periods paper quality was developed to prevent destruction and designs changed as anti-counterfeiting measures were put in place. Sizes range from roughly 66 x 41 mm to 110 x 54 mm. Captions include: denomination, catalog number, and person or vignette depicted.

Original – A 24-note complete type reference set of U.S. Fractional Currency representing each significant design change.
