    The first change in design for the small-sized $2 United States Note came in 1953, more than two decades after the note was downsized in 1928 to a more modern format. The 1953 $2 Legal Tender Note was used for a decade until its final redesign in 1963, one year before the series ended. Now, 1953-1953C $2 Legal Tender Notes in uncirculated condition are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

    • Note arrives inside of an individual currency sleeve!

    • Red ink seals and serial numbers!
    • Issued a face value of $2 (USD) by the United States.
    • President Thomas Jefferson is on the obverse.
    • Jeffersons home at Monticello is on the reverse.

    • Please keep in mind that you will receive only one note with your purchase. To receive multiple notes with the potential for various dates/styles, you will need to place an order for more than one item.

    United States Notes were produced by the Treasury from 1878 to 1927 in a larger size than modern notes available in circulation. In 1928, the United States Note, also known as the Legal Tender Note, was downsized to a format more Americans are familiar with today. The smaller notes were redesigned in 1928 in a variety of denominations.

    The first change to come to the $2 Legal Tender Note arrived in 1953. The 1953 series was used without major changes for a decade. During this period, the US Treasury issued the 1953 Series note in four variations: original 1953, 1953A, 1953B, and 1953C. When the US Treasury changes series in this way, the only difference comes in the form of the signatures of the Treasurer of the United States and the Secretary of the Treasury.

    President Thomas Jefferson features on the obverse of 1953-1953C $2 Legal Tender Notes. President Jefferson has the distinction of one of the longest tenures on American paper currency. Only one version of the $2 United States Note was ever issued without his effigy. The first release in 1862 and used through 1868 featured Alexander Hamilton. Since 1869, the same portrait of President Jefferson has featured on the $2 United States Notes.

    Jeffersons home at Monticello is found on the reverse side of the 1953-1953C $2 Legal Tender Notes. His home at Monticello is a National Historic Landmark and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The image of Jeffersons plantation home in Charlottesville, Virginia, also features on the reverse of the US Nickel.

    These 1953-1953C $2 Legal Tender Notes are available in exceptional, uncirculated condition. Paper notes in this condition have no folds, bends, or wrinkles, even when viewed under a strong light and close visual aid. Each one of the notes ships in an individual currency sleeve. The 1953, 1953A, 1953B, and 1953C Series notes all have varying signature combinations of the Treasurer of the US and Secretary of the Treasury. In order, these combinations are Priest-Humphrey, Smith-Dillon, Priest-Anderson, and Granahan-Dillon.

    Again, please note that if you purchase just one item from this listing, you will only receive a single note. We select your notes at random once your payment has cleared and cannot guarantee the series style you will receive. If you would like to purchase multiple notes, you will need to purchase several items at a time. This listing is for just one note.

    When will I receive my order?+

    When you will receive your order depends primarily on three factors

    1. When we receive your payment (checks and wires must be initiated/sent by you).
      • Please note that you will receive a Paid email once your payment is received.
    2. Holding period after cleared payment.
      • Depending on your payment method, we will hold the order once payment is received and cleared. The hold periods by payment method are listed in checkout and in your confirmation email. Paper checks take the longest and are held up to five business days after payment clears.
    3. Shipping method and transit time.
      • UPS 3-Day Air is the fastest and most reliable method of shipping. These are usually delivered in 1-3 business days once in transit.
      • USPS is less consistent in both transit time and tracking accuracy.

In the unlikely event your tracking does not update by the fifteenth day, we will be allowed to initiate the claims process. Prior to that, all we can do is notify USPS of the situation.

    If your tracking stops updating, please contact us within five (5) business days of the last tracking update so our Claims Department can contact USPS.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    What does “No Will Call” mean?+

    All UPS shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.

    Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?+

    No, we do not. The costs in shipping to these places is extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments.
