    I think that it sounds reasonable, but I am not a currency man.

    I'm sure quite a few of the paper aficionados will chime in.
    Did quick search & saw this:
    According to antiquebanknotes.com
    "The series 1907 Five dollar bill Legal Tender was the last of the woodchopper series. The 1907 five dollar bill is the most common note in the series and be easily found in all grades from rag to uncirculated. The value of a 1907 five dollar bill can run from $30.00 for a horrid rag to $3000 for a perfect specimen."

    Not a paper man (yet) myself, I guess condition will determine whether that's one to snag.

    Meow will say that it is very pretty. Too bad they dont make them like that anymore.

    Meow has just come across and idea. Would it not be neat if they did a State and ATB version in dollar bills like they did in Quarters? And they where made in this vintage style. It would turn Meow into a currency collector in an instant.

    Please don't give the BEP any ideas. The Mint has killed the goose that laid the golden egg as it is with all the stuff they've issued ad infinitum over the past several years. I won't buy another (new) US Mint product because of their policies.

    $150 seems reasonable in my opinion when comparing it with sold eBay listings, although if I were in your position, I'd offer $120 and see if the dealer will take it. Regardless, this particular note was printed during the 1920s as evidenced by the signature combination.

    Just called a friend who collects paper. His advise is no more than $100.00. Bill should have NO creases, and no HOLES (if possible hold it up to a strong light) and if holes detected - depreciate 2-5%. Also no dog ears.
    Good Luck
    stay safe

    "Hsssssssssst" to your idea (with all respect of course:)). I'd prefer to leave George just as he is...POTUS #1 on the $1 bill...right where he is, don't "stir the pot" or "upset the apple cart," all things considered of where our culture/country is going. Maybe some day, but not now or the foreseeable future.

    Hey Mac - The cart was just turned upside down - look at what is coming on the new 20's.
    Stay safe.

    @SteveInTampa could probably give you the most accurate price on that. I see stains and folds on your note, which would decrease the value substantially.

    In all honesty, if I had to give that note a numerical grade, I'd estimate it to be somewhere in the range of an F-12 or an F-15. I believe that the severity of the folds would preclude it from grading higher. Moreover, based on your photos, I don't see any obvious defects that would merit any comments from a TPG.

    Most notes are worn, folded, wrinkled, and stained. This is why I do not deal in currency notes. Some are very unique and beautiful, I have a few that were gifted to me that I would not part with, but would not have personally purchased. Good luck.

    The price is fair. Not great - but not terrible. My advice is to put your $150 in a safe place and save another $100 and then find a nice VF with original paper. You’ll feel better with a higher grade on this iconic design.
