Currency to be displayed at library

A U.S. currency display recently held at Hendrix College will be up at the Conway Public Library on Sept. 16-29, according to a news release.

The display is a brief history of U.S. money, starting from the U.S. Mint in 1792 and ending in a series known as fractional currency in 1976. The currency collection includes a note with Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman on the same bill in circulated condition. The only time the note could have been used is between 1866-1876 because the money was discontinued afterward.
