    1953 5 dollar note

    Asked Apr 30, 2008, 12:54 PM 62 Answers
    I came across a 5 dollar bill from 1953. It says series 1953 A. It has a red seal and red serial numbers. There is a red star in front of each serial number and the letter A after. The names are Priest and Anderson. Treasurer and Secretary of Treasury. The serial # is... star 08287916 A. It has a fold right down the center of Lincolns head, edges look good. It looks a little used but in all I would say in good condition. Just wondering if its worth anything. Thanks

    No, that answer is wrong. RED seal, RED serial #s. Anyone who can tell me something is appreciated.

    I see on eBay where the current bid on one that is similar to yours, although they names might not be exactly the same, is $5.00. 1953 United States RED SEAL $5.00 Bill PERFECT Shape! - eBay (item 110247780789 end time May-02-08 21:48:43 PDT) However, what it is worth will greatly depend on its condition and what someone would be willing to pay for it.

    I do hope that Flying Blue Eagle will be along to address your question, because he has the current pricing information on currency items of this nature and also really knows how to address questions of the type that you have asked.

    I would like my question to come back to the forefront because flying blue eagle didn't answer. I hope to get an opinion from him on this issue.

    I am surprised that he hasn't come along, because he's usually on the alert for posts such as yours. I will private message him about your post.
