Editor's note:

   At the beginning of the Civil War a rapid disappearance of small coins occurred in the United States of America.   This happened in both the north and south.  At that time small denomination coins were made of silver and copper.  These metals became scarce due to the war effort (and hoarding).

   In order to have change for commerce transactions merchants and individuals began using postage stamps.


Postage Stamp Currency

The following article is from

The New York Herald newspaper

- dated Dec 15, 1862

The Postage Stamp Currency - Its Redemption


Post Office, New York, Dec 15, 1862


From and including this date postage stamps which have been used for currency will be received at this office for redemption upon the following terms and conditions, viz:-

1. - Only such as have been used for currency will be redeemed.

2. - Amounts under five dollars will be redeemed upon presentation.

3. - Amounts of five dollars and upwards must be in a single package, closely and securely put up, with the amount enclosed, and the name and residence or place of business of the owner plainly endorsed thereon.

4. - A receipt will be given for each package, numbered in the order of its reception.

5. - The stamps will, without delay, be carefully examined and counted in the order in which the packages are received.  Those of the old issue, and those which have been once used for the prepayment of postage, if any, (which fact will be determined by this department), will be deducted from the amount of the package and destroyed.  The balance will be retained and the amount thereof, as soon as ascertained, will be paid in government notes or postage currency, to the depositor, or his duly authorized agent, upon the production and surrender of the r receipt.  Notice of readiness for payment will be affixed to the bulletin board of this office.

6. - Only one package will be redeemed for the same party.

7. - The stamps, before presentation, must be separated according to the different denominations.

8. - Stamps will be redeemed only on these conditions.

9. - The time for making applications for redemption is limited to thirty days from this date.

By order of  the Postmaster General.

Abram Wakeman, Postmaster

Editor's note continued:


In the place of small change the populace began using postage stamps.  Although postage stamps met a temporary need, stamps were not designed to be handled, consequently they did not hold up well for this purpose. 


To address the need in commerce for small change the US government began making "factional" paper money in denominations less than a dollar.  These small denomination notes were designed to function like regular paper money.   They were sometimes called "postage currency" or "fractional notes" and could be redeemed for face value in US postage stamps.


The above 1862 newspaper article informed the citizens that they could turn in their postage stamps for appropriate cash or fractional currency, provided that the post office could determine that the stamps had not been "used".
