How Much Is A 1878 $5 Bill Worth?

1878 Five Dollar Bill

How Much Is A 1878 $5 Bill Worth?

Five dollar bills from 1878 are usually rare. They are a type of national currency. These $5 bills from 1878 are part of a group of notes known as first charter national bank notes. Don’t get confused by the fact that 1878 and 1875 are printed on the $5 bill. 1878 is the charter date and 1875 is the series date. All of these five dollar bills will have a red seal. Their exact value is based on the bank of issue, the condition, and the serial number. In 1878 five dollars was equal to $262.52 today. Very few people could afford to hold onto five dollars in 1878 for no reason. For that reason and due to small printings, a lot of 1878 five dollar bills are scarce to rare.
