In 1929, the US government introduced a new set of Federal Reserve Bank Notes featuring fresh designs and a smaller size for convenience and efficiency. These were issued in denominations ranging from $5 to $100 dollars and were based on the 1928 Series that initiated the new currency look. However, they differed from the 1928 Series in that they featured brown serial numbers and Treasury seals and were only backed by their issuing Federal Reserve branch.

Federal Reserve Bank Notes were first issued in 1915, but it was not until 1929 that they were introduced in their small-size format with new designs. These notes differed from standard Federal Reserve Notes in that each one was only backed by the bank that issued it. In contrast, Federal Reserve Notes were backed by all 12 branches of the Federal Reserve Bank. The US government continued to produce Federal Reserve Bank Notes until 1934, and by 1945 banks stopped offering them altogether.

Additional details on the obverse include brown serial numbers, the brown Treasury seal, and the Federal Reserve branch that issued the note.
