Description:  Series 1891 $50 silver certificates are a unique one year design that is available in circulated condition, but difficult to find and expensive in high grades.  These notes feature the portrait of Edward Everett, who is today best remembered for giving a two hour speech just before Lincoln gave his two minute long Gettysburg address.

1891 fifty dollar silver certificates aren’t terribly popular right now simply because they are usually outliers in most collections.  The serial numbers on these notes will always be blue, but the seal could be either blue or red.  The back is a simple design that looks very familiar to 1891 silver certificates of all denominations.

Variations:  1891 $50 silver certificates have six possible signature combinations.

Rosecrans – Nebeker (red seal)
Tillman – Morgan (red seal)
Bruce – Roberts (red seal)
Lyons – Roberts (red seal)
Vernon – Treat (red seal)
Parker – Burke (blue seal)

The Rosecrans and Nebeker combination carries the largest premium.  All other combinations are certainly still valuable.
