How Much Is A 1873 $5 Bill Worth?

1873 Five Dollar Bill

How Much Is A 1873 $5 Bill Worth?

Five dollar bills from 1873 are often rare. They are referred to as national currency. These $5 bills from 1873 are part of a group of notes known as first charter national bank notes. The year 1873 should be the only year printed on the bill. Each bill has a spiked red seal and the name of a national bank. These are valued based on their condition and serial number. In 1873 five dollars was equivalent to $304.33 today. A lot of people couldn’t afford to tie up five dollars in 1873 as a curiosity item. Because of that and due to small printings, most 1873 five dollar bills are scarce to rare.

These notes are very collectible. We buy all 1873 five dollar bills. If you need a price quote then please contact us. In recent years we have paid over $24,750 for some very rare 1873 five dollar bills. You won’t know how much yours could be worth unless you ask. And you would not be the first person to be shocked by the value. No matter what you have, we guarantee it is worth many multiples more than the face value of five dollars.

Remember: 1873 five dollar bills with the serial number one, or bills that are in perfect condition, should be worth more money than generic bills.
