Series 1963 $5 Note - Why?

#1 Unread post by muswell65 »

Just curious - why are these selling for so much?

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=19 ... c&LH_BIN=1

I just got the one below from an elderly neighbor who I do shopping for, and immediately recognized it was the prior design. But the red markings were most noticeable, so I looked it up out of curiosity:

Doesn't seem to be particularly rare, especially in circulated condition. Even double face value seems like more than I would have expected. But triple? What gives?

Thanks, Paul. I did stumble across that website yesterday when I did my initial search, but it still left me wondering why the "plain" notes were going for so much. The "star" note (like Mike's) I could understand a bit of a premium. But to Mike's point, I guess the value is whatever someone is willing to pay!

Thanks, Mike. Nice star note! You're spot on with your comment - value is whatever someone is willing to pay!
