Set Description:
The first note I owned in a collecting sense was a crisp new 1976 $2 note. It was presented to me by my mother, who knew I was a coin collector and thought I would like the re-introduced deuce. She was right. Since then, I have collected a few notes; a Star note here and a Barr note there. I have always flirted with collecting currency, and now I have started down the path to creating a worthy collection. The natural place for me to begin a collection would be with my favorite notes; the Deuces. I love the $2 note the most because of the reverse design, preferring historic scenes over static buildings.

Discontinued in 1966, the $2 note was returned to circulation in 1976, both as a cost-saving measure and in celebration of the US Bicentennial. The note retains the former obverse design with the portrait of Thomas Jefferson, and a redesigned reverse featuring a modified version of John Trumbull's painting "The Declaration of Independence". The $2 note has the lowest production numbers of all US currency, coming in at under 1% of all notes printed.

Printing:

Series 1976 (FR#1935) = 590,720,000 notes printed
Series 1995 (FR#1936) = 153,600,000 notes printed

Series 2003A (FR#1938) = 220,800,000 notes printed
Series 2009 (FR# ) =

This set consists of the choicest examples of the PMG graded $2 Federal Reserve Notes that I can acquire. I like this set, simply for the fact that it contains few slots, and is not as intimidating to a beginner as many of the other massive sets.
