Values of $100 1869 Legal Tenders

Price Guide for Rare Legal Tenders

Year:  1869

Denomination:  One Hundred Dollar Bank Note

Type:  Legal Tender

Portrait:  Abraham Lincoln

$100 Bill Front Picture:

Value and History:   All $100 legal tender bank notes printed between 1869 and 1880 have a similar face design. It is easy to spot 1869 examples at a glance. They all have a serial number that ends with a star symbol. They are also printed on very colorful paper. That is how they got the nickname of rainbow notes. These are actually rare and valuable. You would be hard pressed to find an example priced less than $10,000 unless it was impaired. Nice notes are worth far more than that price point.


We buy all of these $100 bank notes issued by The United States. The market for rare paper money is very active right now. If you were ever considering selling then now might be a good time to take a price quote. You can text pictures to 864-430-4020. You can also attach pictures to an email message.
