Values of $50 1874 Legal Tenders

Price Guide for Rare Legal Tenders

Year:  1874

Denomination:  Fifty Dollar Bank Note

Type:  Legal Tender

Portrait:  Benjamin Franklin

$50 Bill Front Picture:

Value and Other Information:   We normally associate Benjamin Franklin with $100 bills. However, Franklin appeared on several fifty dollar bank notes early on in the history of U.S. paper money. These $50 1874 legal tender notes are old, but they are not impossibly rare. Examples are available in most price points between $3,000 and $20,000. The exact value is still always based on the condition. There are no design varieties here. Each note was signed by Spinner and Allison.


We buy all of these $50 bank notes issued by The United States. No matter your intention, you definitely want to have your $50 bill checked out before deciding what to do with it. We have to see pictures in order to provide any sort of price or authenticity information. You can text pictures to 864-430-4020. You can also attach pictures to an email message. You’ll never know what we would have offered unless you ask. The value might surprise you in a good way.
