How Much Is A 1897 $5 Bill Worth?

1897 Five Dollar Bill

How Much Is A 1897 $5 Bill Worth?

Five dollar bills from 1897 are often hard to find. They are a type of national currency. These $5 bills from 1897 are part of a group of notes known as second charter national bank notes. Don’t get confused by the fact that 1897 and 1882 are printed on the $5 bill. 1897 is the charter date and 1882 is the series date. These bills can have either a brown seal or a blue seal. Brown seal five dollar bills tend to be more valuable. Their current value is based on the bank of issue, the serial number, and the condition. James Garfield is on the front of each note. In 1897 five dollars was the same as $149.71 today. Very few people could afford to keep five dollars in 1897 just because. For that reason and due to small printings, a lot of 1897 five dollar bills are scarce to rare.

There is an active market for these notes. We purchase all 1897 five dollar bills. If you need an offer then please contact us. Not too long ago we have paid more than $14,500 for very rare 1897 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.
