There are two types of five dollar bills from the 1910s. One type has Ben Harrison on the front and the other has Abraham Lincoln.
Series of 1902 five dollar national bank notes were printed between 1908 and 1929. If the bank was originally opened (or rechartered) during the 1910s, then they could have a date of 1910, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1914, 1915, 1916, 1917, 1918, or 1919 on them. The date on them will in no way affect the value. These types of five dollar bills are valued based on their rarity, not on their age. The serial number and condition are also very important.
Federal Reserve notes and Federal Reserve bank notes were also printed in the 1910s. All of these five dollar bills have a portrait of Abraham Lincoln on them. They break down as follows:
1914 $5 Red Seal Federal Reserve Note – Red seals are much rarer than blue seals. Their exact value is based on their serial number, issuing district, and condition. 95% of the time the condition is by far the most important factor. These $5 bills, and the type below, can also have the year 1913 written on them. However, that date has nothing to do with when they were printed.
1914 $5 Blue Seal Federal Reserve Note – These five dollar bills are extremely common. Serial numbers under 100 or serial numbers that contain a star symbol will trade for a premium. Otherwise, if they are just in average condition, then they are really only worth about $40.
1915 $5 Federal Reserve Bank Note – These $5 notes can be rare. Please contact us for more details.
1918 $5 Federal Reserve Bank Note – These five dollar bills can also be rare. Please contact us for more details.
