Four new countries for the OFEC today.

Did a little research and found out that only three people were ever depicted on fractional currency during their lifetime: Francis E. Spinner (Treasurer), William Fessenden (a Senator and Secretary of the Treasury), and Spencer Clark (Superintendent of the National Currency Bureau) but when Spinner and Clark decided to have their portrait depicted on currency and it was suggested that the Treasury's privilege of portrait selection for currency was being abused.
So, in 1866 Congress enacted legislation specifically stating "that no portrait or likeness of any living person hereafter engraved, shall be placed upon any of the bonds, securities, notes, fractional or postal currency of the United States.” and on the date of passage, the plates for this 15-cent note depicting Sherman and Grant had not been completed and fell under the scope of the new law and were never issued. So, the Sherman-Grant note only exists as a specimen and doesn’t have anything on the reverse.
Too bad because I think it’s such a cool note

The best way to get an answer to your question/s is by starting your own thread. Coat tailing on someone else's thread will not garner the responses you deserve and it is considered bad etiquette.
You need to go to the Forums page. Select the category that most represents the topic you're inquiring about. In that topic, at the top of the page it'll have a 'button' that reads New Post. Select that and post your new thread.
BTW, welcome to CT.
That's the one!
Good luck and have fun here.
