Obsolete and Civil War Currency - Northern - Items tagged as "Maryland obsolete money"
The states of the Union had the Federal Government behind them so they did not need to issue as much obsolete currencies as the Southern States during the Civil War. However during the war coinage became scarce even in the North so a lot of lower denomination notes were issued. Banks, businesses and towns still issued their own obsolete money but states did not have to. We list our Northern Currencies by state, then mostly by location of issuance in alphabetical order.
