US Rare Currency - Small
On 10 July 1929 the United States replaced its large size currency, like the Series 1923 Silver Certificate One Dollar bill, with small size notes.
The purpose of this change was simply to save some money on paper, but the timing inadvertently signified a new era in United States money. When the change was made there were no less than six kinds of United States paper currency, but only three months later the stock market crash ushered in the era of the Great Depression, during which three of those kinds of currency would disappear.
Thirty years later, two of the remaining kinds of currency would also disappear, leaving only one.
