In 1928, the United States Treasury began a program of downsizing across all its forms of paper currency. This included the long-running United States Note series, otherwise known as the Legal Tender Notes. One of the final changes ever made to the Legal Tender Note before its cancelation in 1964 came in 1953 with a decade-long release that featured four different series of notes. Each series had its own combination of signatures from the Treasurer of the United States and Secretary of the Treasury. Right now, 1953-1953C $2 Legal Tender Notes are available to purchase online at Silver.com in uncirculated condition.

Each 1953-1953C $2 Legal Tender Note available in this listing comes with a protective currency sleeve. The notes listed here come in uncirculated condition, indicating that each note has no fold lines, bends, or wrinkles. Uncirculated notes are almost entirely free of any noticeable signs of use in circulation. In most cases, only minuscule flaws are visible, and even then, under magnification.

Please keep in mind that this listing offers just one note with each item selected. We will select your items at random after your payment has cleared. As such, when you purchase just one item you will receive a random note from this series. If you buy more than one item, you may receive matching notes or several varying notes depending on what is available in our series.

President Thomas Jefferson featured on the obverse of the $2 United States Note from its first redesign in 1869 until the end of the series in 1964. The 1953 Series of $2 Legal Tender Notes was the second release of the small-sized US Notes and offered only minor changes from the 1928 debut of the small-sized note. The appearance of the US Note was largely the same, with the US Treasury seal moved from the left of the note to the right.

The obverse side of 1953-1953C $2 Legal Tender Notes comes with a depiction of President Thomas Jefferson. His effigy was first positioned in the upper-left field of the note in the 19th century, but was eventually moved to the position it is found on these US Notes. The bust of President Jefferson is found at the center of the design field. The serial number on the note is found in the lower-left and upper-right fields, with the US Treasury seal overlaying “TWO” to the right of the portrait.

On the reverse face of 1953-1953C Legal Tender Notes in the $2 denomination is an image of President Jefferson’s home at Monticello. Located outside of Charlottesville, Virginia, the home was first designed by Jefferson at the age of 26 when he inherited the plantation from his father.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
