Federal Reserve Note.
United States Note, (U.S. Note) among the first national United States currencies, authorized by the Legal Tender Act of 1862, and issued for more than a century, until 1971. This was the first greenback and was government-issued currency, different from the central-bank paper currency (Federal Reserve Note) that the United States began to use in 1914, and exclusively now uses. The two types of notes had similar green-inked backs, but the later Federal Reserve note was distinguised from the older U.S. Note by an green rather than red treasury seal on the obverse side of the note.
United States Greenback Party, an American political party that was active between 1874 and 1884 which advocated government-issued currency.
