Description

Though banknotes during the war were simplified, it still required standard information to be considered legal tender: a series number, a serial number, and in the case of Philippine notes, signatures of the monetary committee. Smaller denominations like this five-centavo bill could be passed with one signature from the monetary committee, while three signatures were required for the high denominations.
