Interestingly, there are regulations that govern the reproduction of images of U.S. paper currency. The image must show less than 3/4 of the bill or, if it shows the entire bill must be significantly smaller or larger than the real size of the bill. The image must be one-sided only and negatives or plates used in the illustration must be destroyed. The partial reproductions, the dimensions of the reproductions and the one-sidedness of the images mean that this quiz complies with federal regulations.

Shoot! Sprout points out to me that he made this quiz several months ago: http://www.sporcle.com/games/sproutcm/dead_presidents I didn't remember it (though I had actually played it) and unfortunately it didn't come up during my search. Other than the fact that I included the state quarters series in this one, it's the same quiz. Yikes!

Are there similar regulations for coins? I remember seeing an ad where they used pictures of shrunken coins (see http://capturedlightning.com/frames/shrinkergallery.html) instead of normal ones!

There's something creepy about Eisenhower's profile there.

@Pyrophorus- I don't believe there are. The image with bills is that they can be counterfeited through printing and so reproducing the image is dangerous. Coins, inherently, don't have that problem.

Thanks, LTH. I'm glad you noticed- the layout was actually quite intentional.

Who is Caesar Rodney? Am I totally ignorant, or is it just something only people who actually live in Delaware know?
Oct 4th, 2012 at 13:24 GMT
Caesar Rodney is a Founding Father. He was a lawyer and delegate to the Stamp Act Congress, the Continental Congress and the U.S. Congress. He was a Brig. General in the Delaware militia during the Revolution and is a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He is perhaps best known for his role in the adoption of the Declaration. The Delaware delegation was deadlocked on the question of independence. When Rodney got word of this from the other pro-independence delegate, he rode 80 miles through the rain back to Philadelphia to break the deadlock and allow independence to carry the day (a act that is somewhat dramatized in the stage musical and movie '1776'). It is this ride that is remembered on the back of the Delaware quarter.
