Lowest Denomination United States Banknote

The lowest denomination ever issued by the United States is the 3 Cents Treasury note. Known as the Fractional Currency, they were used during the Civil War when coins were in short supply. The bank note is about the size of a postage stamp and carries a portrait of George Washington.
