In 1928, the US Treasury issued the first-ever small-sized notes for a number of different forms of American paper currency. The Silver Certificate, Federal Reserve Note, and United States Note were all downsized to a format more familiar to modern Americans today. The latter, the US Note, was also known as the Legal Tender Note and was in production from 1862 to 1971. Provident Metals currently has Very Fine-condition 1928 $5 Legal Tender Notes available to you for purchase online.

When you purchase one of these 1928 $5 Legal Tender Notes from Provident Metals, you will receive an item that is in Very Fine condition. Notes in this condition have signs of wear and tear from use in circulation, including rounded edges, numerous folds, and the possibility for mild soiling. However, the condition of the paper remains crisp and relatively clean. Each note comes with its own protective plastic currency sleeve.


President Abraham Lincoln is found on the obverse side of 1928 $5 Legal Tender Notes. The release of the Series of 1928 established the now-familiar design combination of President Lincoln and the Lincoln Memorial on the $5 denomination of paper money printed in the United States. This particular portrait of President Lincoln first appeared on a $5 denomination with the 1914 Series Federal Reserve Note. The ink on the serial numbers and Treasury seal on this side is red.


The Lincoln Memorial is featured on the reverse of 1928 $5 Legal Tender Notes. The design debuted in 1928 on the Federal Reserve Note and these Legal Tender Notes. It depicts the neoclassical temple that houses a seated statue of the 16th President of the United States of America.


The Series of 1928 resulted in a shared design across the resized United States Notes and Federal Reserve Notes. To differentiate between the two forms of paper money, the Treasury printed these Legal Tender Notes with red ink on the serial numbers and Treasury seal, while the Federal Reserve Notes came with green ink.
