How Much Is A 1899 $5 Bill Worth?

1899 Five Dollar Bill

How Much Is A 1899 $5 Bill Worth?

Five dollar bills from 1899 are traditionally very rare. They are referred to as national currency. These $5 bills from 1899 are part of a group of notes known as second charter national bank notes. Don’t get confused by the fact that 1899 and 1882 are printed on the $5 bill. 1899 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 1899 five dollars was equal to $141.12 today. A lot of people couldn’t afford to hold onto five dollars in 1899 for no reason. For that reason and due to small printings, most 1899 five dollar bills are scarce to rare.

There is an active market for these notes. We purchase all 1899 five dollar bills. If you need an offer then please contact us. In recent years we have paid more than $15,000 for very rare 1899 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.
