United States Notes were adopted for circulation during the Civil War in 1862 in denominations from One through One Thousand Dollars. The $5 denomination remained when we switched over to small size notes in 1928 and continued until the early 1960's when this type was discontinued.
Star ★ Notes are printed by the Bureau of Engraving & Printing to replace notes that had errors in production. Less than 4 million Star Notes were printed of this series which is only about 5% of total production, making these highly sought after by collectors! Although they are still legal tender, their red seals and serial numbers make them great collector items.
Series 1963 $5 United States Notes were the last of this type in this denomination to be printed, and they saw heavy usage and routinely appeared in circulation well into the 1970s.
