I like notes that make you say, "Who the heck is that?"

Having seen the same dead presidents on my currency for over 50 years, I find it fascinating to see older notes that make me say "who the heck is that guy?" Some of them are downright obscure.

I also really enjoy the jarring effect of seeing a president on a note that doesn't belong there. For example, Andrew Jackson is on the 1914 $10 note...but he's always lived on our $20 note. That always shakes me up. "Hey, what's he doing on a ten?"

    I agree Steve. Jackson on a $10, Washington on a $20 ? There were no standards until the release of small-size notes in 1928. I don’t believe coins used Presidents until 1909.

    The fractional series has a lot of people that most wouldn't know.
