Description:  Right now we only know for sure that two series of 1882 $5,000 gold certificates exist.  Both of them are held in government collections.  The goods news is that these notes were printed for a long time and that the serial number range is high enough that other should be found.

The two serial numbers of the known examples are M26080 and M20625.  So if your $5,000 bill has that serial number, then what you have is a reproduction or a copy.

All 1882 $5,000 bills have a portrait of Andrew Jackson on the front and eagle featured prominently on the back.
1888 $5,000 gold certificates were also printed.  However, all 1888 series notes have been redeemed.

Variations:  There were 11 different varieties of the 1882 $5,000 gold certificate printed.  As you might expect, all of them are rare, so the signature combinations aren’t terribly important.  For the record though, they are:

Bruce – Gilfillan – with a brown seal
Bruce – Gilfillan – with a brown seal, and signed by Thomas C Acton, and payable at New York
