For a dollar bill to have a value greater than its denomination, it must have some unique printing and characteristics that, sometimes, cannot be noticed at first glance, but can be seen in collectors eye in the numismatic market.
Although we often talk about the age of the bill or coin so that it has a higher value, it is important to know that the history of money is also important even if it is in circulation and that is what we will talk about in this note. So before paying the money, take a good look at the dollars in your wallet.
WHAT DOLLARS IN CIRCULATION ARE WORTH?
Below, find out the list of dollar bills with high market value, according to Yayoo Finance.
- The 1861 $1,000 bill: holds the record for being the largest denomination ever printed for public consumption. It has a large portrait of President Grover Cleveland printed on one side. It is valued in the range of US$1,500 to US$2,500, depending on its state of conservation. This $1,000 bill was one of the first bills used in the Confederate States of America.
- The 1928 $500 Bill: Although produced in 1928, the last $500 bill to enter circulation was in 1945. It featured a portrait of President William McKinley. In the numismatic market they can fetch between 1,000 and 1,500 dollars, depending on their state of conservation. This $500 bill was officially and formally discontinued 24 years after its introduction in 1969.
- The 1950 $100 bill: This is one of the most used bills today. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it has a detailed portrait of Benjamin Franklin. If it’s in good condition, you might get paid around $120 to $150 in today’s dollars.
- The 1862 $50 bill: First issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States for printing in 1862, it was called a “large legal tender.” Today, it can fetch a price of $80 to $100, depending on its condition. It has a portrait of Ulysses S. Grant.
- The 1933-34 $10 Bill: These rare finds are known as the “Series 1933 United States $10 Denomination Silver Certificate.” The key to authentication is to look for a blue stamp and serial numbers. These bills are still easy to find and common, meaning they usually only cost $10, but Light Green Seal (LGS) bills usually cost between $20 and $35.
