|| History of $2 Bill |
First of all have you ever seen a $2 dollar bill?
Back of $2 Dollar Bill
The reason the $2 Dollar bill is of interest to members of Art's List is the picture on the back. Former U.S. President Thomas Jefferson is featured on the obverse of the note. The painting The Declaration of Independence by John Trumbull is featured on the reverse. The design on the obverse (excluding the elements of a Federal Reserve Note) is the oldest of all current U.S. currency having been adopted in 1929; the reverse is the second oldest design having been adopted in 1976. If you look close at the names in this painting you will see some very familiar names; Hewes (Hughes), Livingston, Hall. We know that Hews connects to our Hughes on WV Route 87. I am still researching the Livingstons and Halls. A key to the names is included in this document.
