Notes :
This note was an interim emergency issue, printed at the Government Printing Office by the Government Stamp Printer, to meet the large demand for banknotes generated during the early years of World War I. It was known as the Rainbow Note because of the colours in the design which merged from light blue ends through green to bright orange in the centre of the front. On the back, this colouring was reversed.
