Treasury Note Series 1891

Series 1891 Treasury Notes are similar to series 1891 notes on the front.
The backs of the series 1891 notes are drastically changed to a more simple design with
larger blank fields. Oddly, it was considered harder to counterfeit the simpler design.
I can't see how that would be true...sadly the series 1891 notes lost a lot of appeal with the change.
