  • Brown Back National Currency
  • Blue Seal National Currency
  • Small Size National Bank Note

 Legal Tenders

The term lelegal-tender-american-coins-and-goldgal tender is a term with multiple interpretations.  We have found the most accurate definition of a legal tender is a piece of currency that didn’t earn interest, wasn’t issued by the bank, and wasn’t backed by precious metals.  The US Government began releasing Legal Tenders during the Civil War and was met with much speculation among the public because they weren’t  backed by any precious metal.

Some of the most notable Legal Tenders being bought, sold, and appraised today are $2 bills.

Value & Appraisals

Keep in mind that the true value of any Paper Currency has multiple variables including the rarity of the bill, the serial number of the bill, the date issued, and last but not least the overall condition your Paper Currency is in.  The best way to determine the value of any paper currency is to have it evaluated / appraised by a professional Currency dealer.
