TT FR 1226 3 CENT THIRD ISSUE FRACTIONAL PCGS 66 PPQ GEM NEW

3 Cent Third Issue Fractional Fr # 1226 graded 66 PPQ (premium paper quality) Gem New by PCGS. A lovely example of this green back third issue note that has excellent margins and near perfect centering. The 3¢ Fractionals were the only Third Issue notes without signatures and they were also the only 3¢ Fractionals issued. The third issue of Fractional Currency started at the end of 1864 with the war going full blast. As the quality of fractional notes improved, so did the quality of the counterfeits of the earlier issue notes. This, and the ever increasing demand for "small change," made a design change necessary. The third issue started signatures on the notes, some printed and some autographed. There are red and green backs, plain paper and fiber paper, different surcharges and different sheet position indicators. This is also the only issue to have 3 cent notes.
