The Last Time America Had Sound Currency

In 1913 the abomination that is the private Federal Reserve was established. Soon after that the U.S. no longer had it's own back currency, but rather "Federal Reserve Notes" which were, and are essentially just paper.

Below is a picture containing three currency items from Xieon Politics, a full description follows below.
