The first coin substitute notes issued under the 1862 Act were called Postage Currency. These notes are easily identified because they feature reproductions of then current postage stamps. These notes came with perforated and straight edges. They were printed by the American Bank Note Co. and the National Bank Note Co. which were basically extensions of the government holding a special license amounting to a monopoly.
