February 17th, 1864 Richmond $5 Confederate Bill Value
Description: Typically the lower the denomination, the less valuable a confederate note will be. The $5 bill is no exception to this rule. Each $5 note from 1864 will have a vertical “FIVE” printed to the left and a number “5” at the top right corner. At the center is a picture of Virginia State Capitol which was the capital of the Confederacy during the American Civil War (Wiki).
Most confederate paper money pictured someone on their bills. Christopher Memminger, pictured at the bottom right corner of each bill, was a politician during the American Civil War (Wiki).
It’s crazy to think these old bills were used as wallpaper after the Civil War, that’s how worthless they were. Today, they have some collector value depending on the condition of the banknote.
You should still consider sending us a photo(s) of your confederate banknotes as you may have something valuable. Consider us strong buyers of this type of Confederate paper money.
Value: The value of these confederate $5 bills ranges depending on the serial number and overall condition. High condition bills will be worth sometimes over $45, while poor condition bills are worth around $15.
