    tobacco notes

    What is "tobacco notes" in the following? I don't know what "notes" means there.

    But other commodities, such as seashells, fur, fish, corn, rice, and tobacco, have also worked as currencies. Tobacco notes were used as money during colonial times.

    Thank you.

    Re: tobacco notes

    Hi.

    *I AM NOT A NATIVE OR TEACHER.*

    "Tobacco note" refers to a kind of certificate one could provide to get tobacco instead. It was convertible to a certain amount of tobacco.
