1907 - President Teddy Roosevelt disliked the way American money looked, and instituted a program to try to alter the designs similar to the coins of the ancient Greeks. To this end, he asked sculptor Augustus Saint Gaudens to create a new design for the double eagle ...
Saint Gauden's design featured Liberty Walking, holding a torch.
There are three types of these double eagles as well. ... Type 4 was created in high relief, with the date given in Roman numerals. ... Type 5, the design was changed to low relief, and the year was given in Arabic numerals.
Neither of these two types had the motto IN GOD WE TRUST, because Roosevelt didn't believe the word GOD should be used on coinage. Also, he felt it interfered with the artistic quality of the design. He was over-ruled by Congress.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was inaugurated during the depths of The Great Depression. Most commercial banks in the United States had closed by Inauguration Day, March 4, 1933. Anxious Americans, demanding gold, had reduced the Federal Reserve's gold supply almost to the legal minimum, creating additional fears of an impending monetary crisis.
On March 6, the President set in motion a chain of events that ended the international gold standard once and for all. First, he closed the nation's banks and prohibited them from paying out or exporting gold coin and bullion, using emergency powers granted by the Trading with the Enemy Act ...
Three days later, he sent to the 73rd Congress the Emergency Banking Relief Act, which sought to amend the Trading with the Enemy Act and specifically those provisions which authorize the President in times of war to "investigate, regulate, or prohibit... the importing, exporting, hoarding, melting or earmarking of gold..."
... under the authority of the Emergency Banking Relief Act, President Roosevelt issued Executive Order No. 6073. In addition to authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to decide which of the nations' banks could open, the Order prohibited owners of gold from exporting or otherwise removing it from the United States. Shortly thereafter, also under the authority of the Emergency Banking Relief Act, the President issued Executive Order No. 6102, which provided that all privately owned gold in the United States was to be confiscated by the government. As compensation, the owners would receive paper money.
... nine double eagles mysteriously surfaced during the mid-1940's and 1950's. Through the years, they were seized by the United States Secret Service from those who tried to unload them; ultimately all nine were melted down.
Lloyd was forced to abandon his car in the middle of the street to begin the long walk home. As he made his way on foot up Route 395, he met a man who had been working at the Pentagon. Walking side by side they found a dollar bill lying in the road. They picked it up, tore it in half, each signed one half and traded with each other. Parting ways each took half of a torn dollar with a stranger’s name on it. Lloyde still keeps this tangible reminder of his experience on 9/11.
Lloyd still keeps a torn dollar bill signed by a stranger and dated September 11, 2001. It marks a day he has struggled to survive for two years.
Lloyd says the hardest part of his journey since 9/11 has been trying to survive without money. He realized once he got home the morning of September 11th that he would not be able to work without his car—it is his livelihood. He was without a vehicle for two months until he purchased a used car with the help of American Red Cross funds.
They were the only people to come to his aid in the beginning until his daughter came across the Survivor’s Fund. With the help of his case manager and financial support from the Fund, he has been able to afford his monthly expenses, something he struggled with after 9/11. “I’m not accustomed to people helping me,” he says. “I’m amazed that there are people there just to do that.”

Interesting post. However, I fail to see the relevance of the torn $1 bill. Can you elaborate?
Int'l bankers attempting to destroy America - NWO - 9/11 - Federal Reserve - Smoking gun
