Oversized Fifty Dollar Bills – A Guide With Values
Oversized fifty dollar bills can be especially rare. Large quantities of fifty dollar notes were not printed by The United States. It was also very expensive for someone to save a fifty dollar bill. Paper money did not really become collectible until the late 1940s. So a $50 bill issued in the 1860s wasn’t worth more than face value until 80 years later. You can understand why almost all of them were spent and destroyed.
The most common oversized fifty dollar bills are blue seal federal reserve notes from 1914. 1922 and 1913 $50 gold certificates are also relatively common. Many 1902 blue seal fifty dollar national bank notes can be bought for less than $1,000. However, there are plenty of exceptions to that rule. As with all collectible currency, the condition, serial number, and series will determine the value of antique fifty dollar bills.
