1950 $5 Bill
A few years ago, I found a 1950 $5 bill, and just yesterday stumbled back onto it. Doing some research, I saw that it's worth...well, $5. But those articles are a few years old, and I know that things can change value very quickly. So I was wondering if it was worth anything now. The serial number is H14693488A, and it does not have a series. If you need to know anything more, I will post. Thanks

Welcome to Treasure Net and Merry Christmas !!
As of a few years ago, Federal Reserve Notes from the series 1950 (no A through E series) had a retail value from $12.50 to $140.00 in VF-20 condition. The higher values are (as usual) for bills with stars; otherwise all the bills without stars were (retail) valued at $12.50 except for the St. Louis bill ($15.00).
You may wish to check out Ebay for current sales' prices.

Now here's something that I found when going through Ebay. The signatures on the bills are different. The Secretary of the Treasury is John W. Hayden, and the other I can't make out. And it is a St. Louis bill, but no star.

John W. Snyder was the Secretary of the Treasury during that period.
I'm not familiar with the name John W. Hayden.
Can you post a pic of that bill?
