United States Notes were introduced by the United States in 1862. The first series of designs were printed in 1862 and 1863, with across-the-board redesigns taking place in 1869, 1874, 1875, 1878, and 1880, though not all notes were necessarily redesigned in each of those years. From that point onward, individual changes were made to the denominations in 1901, 1907, 1917, and 1923. These redesigns and series apply only to the large-size format of US Notes that ceased production in 1928, prior to the 1929 debut of small-sized notes.
All of these 1907 $5 Legal Tender Notes are available in Fine+ condition and come with protective plastic currency sleeves. Notes in this condition have common signs of circulation use, including rounded corners, margin splits, and soiling. Numerous fold lines will be noticeable as well.
The 1907 Series of $5 Legal Tender Notes marked the last change to the large-size format in the United States Note Series. The primary designs on the obverse remain unchanged from the 1869 release and the reverse saw only minor changes to the notations of the denomination. The major change in 1907 was the introduction of the rosette-styled US Treasury seal.
On the obverse of 1907 $5 Legal Tender Notes is a depiction of President Andrew Jackson. This portrait has been used across a wide range of American paper notes and is still found on the modern $20 Federal Reserve Note. It debuted on the $5 Legal Tender Note in 1869. At the center of the note is a design that gives it the wood chopper nickname. The vignette here shows a frontier family, with the husband holding an axe in one hand.
The reverse side of 1907 $5 Legal Tender Notes features an ornate design element with the nation of issue at the center and the denomination in the corners. The upper corners have an Arabic numeral, while the lower corners have Roman numerals for the $5 (USD) denomination.
