In 1928, the United States Treasury began a program of downsizing across all its forms of paper currency. This included the long-running United States Note series, otherwise known as the Legal Tender Notes. One of the final changes ever made to the Legal Tender Note before its cancelation in 1964 came in 1953 with a decade-long release that featured four different series of notes. Each series had its own combination of signatures from the Treasurer of the United States and Secretary of the Treasury.

President Thomas Jefferson featured on the obverse of the $2 United States Note from its first redesign in 1869 until the end of the series in 1964. The 1953 Series of $2 Legal Tender Notes was the second release of the small-sized US Notes and offered only minor changes from the 1928 debut of the small-sized note. The appearance of the US Note was largely the same, with the US Treasury seal moved from the left of the note to the right.
The obverse side of 1953-1953C $2 Legal Tender Notes comes with a depiction of President Thomas Jefferson. His effigy was first positioned in the upper-left field of the note in the 19th century, but was eventually moved to the position it is found on these US Notes. The bust of President Jefferson is found at the center of the design field. The serial number on the note is found in the lower-left and upper-right fields, with the US Treasury seal overlaying “TWO” to the right of the portrait.
On the reverse face of 1953-1953C Legal Tender Notes in the $2 denomination is an image of President Jefferson’s home at Monticello. Located outside of Charlottesville, Virginia, the home was first designed by Jefferson at the age of 26 when he inherited the plantation from his father.
