Encyclopedia > Large sized note

A large-sized note is a bill of any denomination of U.S. currency printed between 1863 and 1929. This is in contrast with small-sized notes, which were printed starting in 1928. Large-sized notes exist in denominations of $1 through $10000. The most common large-sized notes are the Federal Reserve Notes of Series 1914 and 1918. These are detailed below, but are only a subset of all large-sized notes made by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP).

A large-sized note can also refer to a large-denomination banknote in various currencies.
