Money from the American West - 1869
After the Civil War, the government re-designed the paper currency, phasing out the Civil War-era greenbacks. The country was experiencing a post-war growth and boom. This series of currency works well for early Western-era events and representations. You could see this money buying chips for the faro and other gambling tables in Western saloons. This set includes $1, $2, $5, $10, and $20 bills from the 1869 issues of United States currency.
