The United States Note, also known as the Legal Tender Note, was introduced by the United States in 1862. This came just one year after the debut of the Demand Note, a note issued briefly by the Union after the start of the Civil War. The Legal Tender Note would go on to see production and circulation in the United States through 1971. The 1907 Series for the $5 denomination was the last redesign of the large-sized notes and offered little change from the design introduced in 1880.
All of these 1907 $5 Legal Tender Notes are available to you with protective plastic sleeves. The notes ship in Very Fine condition. A note in this condition shows moderate signs of circulation use that can include light-to-mild soiling, and/or numerous fold lines. The notes are free of major detractions.
On the obverse of 1907 $5 Legal Tender Notes is an image of President Andrew Jackson. When the note was introduced in 1862, an effigy of Freedom was depicted on the $5 denomination. In 1869, the United States introduced the effigy of President Jackson on the obverse along with a frontier family with a husband wielding an axe with his hunting dog nearby. This design would go on to feature on the notes through the 1875 and 1880 redesigns, remaining on the bills with the 1907 redesign.
The reverse side of the 1907 $5 Legal Tender Notes comes with a depiction of the denomination of the notes. Throughout the history of this series, the reverse always maintained relatively simple imagery with just the denomination.
