Obsolete type $2 notes

Series 1976 was the first issue of $2 Federal Reserve Notes. Previously, the $2 denomination had been issued only as United States Notes. On these notes, the first letter of the serial number had no particular significance, as they were not issued directly by the Federal Reserve Banks. So once the A..A block was completed, the next notes were printed in the B..A block, and so on. Each full block had serial numbers from 00000001 to 99999999, with the hundred-millionth note replaced by a star note. Star notes had the star at the beginning of the serial number rather than the end.

Prior to Series 1953, when notes of different series were in production simultaneously, they would often be mixed together before the serial numbers were overprinted. Therefore, it is not always possible to separate the serial numbers used on one series from those used on the next.

The first serial number printed for Series 1928A was A 180 00001 A; for Series 1928B, A 738 60001 A; for Series 1928C, B 090 08001 A; for Series 1928D, B 839 88001 A; for Series 1928E, D 297 12001 A; for Series 1928F, D 361 92001 A; and for Series 1928G, D 785 52001 A. In each case, notes of older series continued to be produced until all old printing plates had worn out, and whenever notes of different series were in production simultaneously, they were mixed at random before serial numbering.
