General Information About Old $500 Bills:
We are just going to talk about $500 green seal notes from the series of 1928, 1934, and 1934A. The vast majority of these notes in lightly circulated condition are going to sell for between $650 and $850. Here are the exceptions. Any $500 bill that has a serial number that ends with a star symbol is rare. This is especially true for the series of 1928. 1928 $500 stars are extremely rare and almost always sell for more than $10,000. Prices for other star notes start at about $1,500. There is also a strong market for notes with serial numbers under 100. For example, B00000037A is a low serial number under 100. The serial number B00009342A is not considered low. Any $500 bill in gem uncirculated condition is scarce. A note in perfect condition has a value that starts at around $1,500. That price point can go up quickly depending on the year and serial number. The first letter of the serial number is also important. Notes can start with A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, or L. These correspond to the issuing district. Please contact us for details about the importance of the serial number and condition.
