3 Cent Third Issue Fractional Currency. Fr 1226 graded 66 Exceptional Paper Quality Gem Uncirculated by PMG. A bright and flashy example of this high denomination fractional type note that is not often seen in such a lofty grade. The 3¢ Fractional were the only Third Issue notes without signatures and they were also the only 3¢ Fractional issued. The third issue of Fractional Currency started at the end of 1864 with the war going full blast. As the quality of fractional notes improved, so did the quality of the counterfeits of the earlier issue notes. This, and the ever increasing demand for "small change," made a design change necessary. The third issue started signatures on the notes, some printed and some autographed. There are red and green backs, plain paper and fiber paper, different surcharges and different sheet position indicators. This is also the only issue to have 3 cent notes.
