How Much Is A 1869 $10 Bill Worth?

Sometimes the serial number can add a significant premium as well. Some sell for as little as a few hundred dollars. Others can have a value well into the thousands. Please remember that 1869 is only the charter date. The bill could have actually been printed as late as 1889. Some ten dollar bills from 1869 can have “Series of 1875” written on them.
