The table below shows the serial number ranges produced for the notes in this series. All notes in this series have Chittenden-Spinner signatures.

The modified Treasury seal, used for the later notes, is very similar in design to the original seal used earlier. The main difference is that the original seal has a solid background behind the shield (within the circle), while the modified seal has a background of spokes behind the shield.

The second obligation, used on the New Series notes, indicates that the note is "receivable in payment of all loans made to the United States", whereas the first obligation had made the note "exchangeable for U.S. Six per cent Twenty Years Bonds".
