Surly,
True. I remember reading about Lincoln's greenbacks. The European bankers (and ours too!) were going nuts about that. Some say that is the MAIN REASON he was eventually assassinated. He proved we didn't need financing "arrangements" that always benefit the 1%. They didn't like that, to put it mildly!

Apparently Wisegeek is referring to more recent developments in the 20th century when counterfeiting became a bigger problem.

I think somebody at Wisegeek made a similar comment about the greenbacks. You might go over there and set them straight. You can register and your comment will be attached to the question of why our currency is green permanently.
