Legal Tender $5 Bill (1869 – 1880)
Legal Tender $5 Bill (1869 - 1880)
1869 marked the first year that Andrew Jackson was used on the five dollar bill; however, it was hardly the last. The design type show below was used for 1869, 1875, 1878, 1880, and 1907 $5 bills. Some things like that paper color, serial number color, seal color, and other odds and ends are different between series. However, the basic design is always the same. The signature combination at the bottom of each bill is very important with these issues. Rare combinations with some serial number and seal attributes can make some of these five dollar bills very rare.
