How Much Is A 1898 $5 Bill Worth?

1898 Five Dollar Bill

How Much Is A 1898 $5 Bill Worth?

Five dollar bills from 1898 are usually rare. They are technically called national currency by collectors. These $5 bills from 1898 are part of a group of notes known as second charter national bank notes. Don’t get confused by the fact that 1898 and 1882 are printed on the $5 bill. 1898 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 1898 five dollars was equivalent to $145.35 today. Most people couldn’t afford to tie up five dollars in 1898 as a curiosity item. Because of that and due to small printing numbers, most 1898 five dollar bills are scarce to rare.

These notes are very collectible. We buy all 1898 five dollar bills. If you need a price quote then please contact us. In the past we have paid over $14,750 for some very rare 1898 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.
