History of 1922 $500 Gold Certificates
Large Size Gold Certificate bills, like the $500 seen above, are extremely difficult to acquire for most collectors today. This large size only lasted until the early 1900s. Many collectors call any large size bill a “horse blanket” note because it’s large enough to throw over the back of a horse. Metaphorically speaking, of course. Today’s small size banknotes were quickly introduced into circulation as it saved costs on ink, paper, and was easier to carry around.
This 1922 $500 Gold Certificate is a scarce banknote and not commonly collected by most currency collectors. This print design is nearly identical to the later issued 1882 $500 Gold Certificate. Typically speaking, the 1882 fifty dollar bills are going to be worth more money due to the limited number actually printed during the time. The later the issue, the more banknotes were typically printed.
Where can I sell my old banknote?
You have many options when it comes to selling your old paper money. With complete transparency, I will tell you, unless you don’t care about getting ripped off, do not visit a local Pawn or Coin shop unless you personally know them. Any physical shop or business with employees has overhead costs that need to be paid, resulting in absolutely needing to get better deals on items.
Ideally, you want to sell your paper money to a paper money expert who is also a collector (hint hint). We have no overhead costs, no employees, just a small family who loves collecting old paper money bills. We will, without a doubt, offer you the most for your paper money with no obligations to sell to us. We love talking about old banknotes, contact us today and we will respond without 24 hours with our best offer.
