The Franklin Mint 1928-1963 Obsolete $5 5-Piece Bank Note Collection

We spy a collector's treasure! Before Federal Reserve Notes featured only green Treasury Department Seals, there were a number of different notes in America. This set represents the three different types of bank notes in circulation from 1928-1963.

All five $5 bills feature similar designs with Abraham Lincoln on the front and the Lincoln Memorial on the back. The most noticeable difference is the color of the seal, but the wording on each bank note is also different to reflect the issuing entity and the mode of redemption. Add this five-piece bank note set to your collection today!

Did You Know?

  • The 1928 $5 U.S. Note with a red seal was the first small-size bank note following the switch from large-size notes which were about 50% bigger.
  • The 1934 $5 Silver Certificate was first small-size Silver Certificate. Unlike other bank notes, Silver Certificates were actually backed by real silver in the Treasury, and the holder of the bank note could exchange it for a Silver Dollar until the 1960s.
  • The 1934 $5 Federal Reserve Notes eventually became the only circulating currency, but in 1934, they were just one of many types.
  • The 1953 $5 Silver Certificates were the last series of $5 Silver Certificates. They circulated until 1969, when they were no longer allowed to be exchanged for silver.
  • The 1953 or 1963 $5 U.S. Notes were the last U.S. Notes and the last series of $5 bills with a seal other than green.
