This silver certificate offered convenience and exceptional portability while equaling the value of heavy silver dollars. The last of the $5 silver certificates issued for commerce was Series 1953. Its distinctive blue seal set it apart from Federal Reserve Notes and until the early 1960s could be redeemed for silver on demand. While still considered legal tender, the practice of exchanging these certificates for silver coins was discontinued due to the market price of the precious metal outstripping the face value of currency. Very Good quality.
