Legal Tender Notes, also known as United States Notes, were first created during the Civil War to pay the nation’s debts. Grab one of the last of these examples of the $5 Legal Tender note with the 1953 or 1963 $5 Legal Tender “small size” note.
The 1963 notes were the last United States Notes created. (Current $5 bills are Federal Reserve notes.)
Each includes a portrait of Abraham Lincoln on the obverse, with the words “UNITED STATES NOTE,” “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “WILL PAY TO THE BEARER ON DEMAND FIVE DOLLARS.” These bills featured the red seal.
The reverse features the image of the Lincoln Memorial with the words “THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “FIVE DOLLARS.”
The colloquial term “greenback” originated with these Legal Tender notes, as a pro-paper money party was created–named after the green reverses or “backs” of the notes.
They are signed by Treasurer, Ivy Baker Priest, and United States Secretary of the Treasury, George M. Humphrey.
