Prices for Two Dollar 1869 Legal Tenders

Value Guide for 1869 Two Dollar Bank Notes

Year:  1869

Denomination:  Two Dollar Bank Note

Type:  Legal Tender (United States Note)

$2 Bill Front Picture:

Description:   All currency issued by The United States in 1869 had a very unique multi-colored paper. Today collectors refer to them as “rainbow” notes. All serial numbers end with a star symbol, so there is no added premium for the star. Values are based just on the condition.

Seal Type:  All 1869 $2 bills have the same large red treasury seal as shown above.

Varieties:   All 1869 $2 bills were signed by Allison and Spinner. There are no other varieties. Of course there will still be serial number and plate number differences between different notes.

Portrait:  Thomas Jefferson

Value:  There is a huge price range between a circulated 1869 $2 bill and the same note in perfect condition. Notes in circulated condition are relatively available and typically sell for $300 to $1,000. These banks notes were printed on relatively thin paper, so they have not stood the test of time very well. Choice and gem uncirculated notes are few and far between. They sell for significant premiums. Contact us for details.
