These $50 bills are 1955, and 1969 A. Are they worth more than face value?

In that circulated condition, they're unlikely to have any significant value above face.
By the way, the one you described as a 1955 is actually a 1988, by the signatures.
The top bill is a series 1969A and the bottom bill is a 1988. You may get s buck or two more thx not face but that's on a good day.
Both notes are worth over face value, however, it might not be worth selling them on eBay, because of fees.
They’re in good condition- I would keep them. Pre-1990 notes are getting more scarce each day.
They would only be worth something to the right person, someone that
Is collecting that particular district or year and series, the average
Collector would not be willing to pay over face as there just to common.
There are no 1955 bills.
You'd have to sell the bill for AT LEAST $59.00 to even break EVEN.
$59.00 sale price
-$7.97 eBay and PayPal fees
-$0.50 First Class stamp
= $50.43, giving you $0.43 profit on the sale.
Realistically, unless you can sell it for $70 it won't be worth your time.
Stamps cost .55 cents.
And who,s going to pay that...LOL
Cash them in, they are barely worth more than face, and $50 in too much to tie up in at best $10 in potential profit and that assumes a zero-expense sale. That's why few people collect $50 and $100 notes, too much depreciating face value that could otherwise produce real returns (if you keep these and pay any credit card debt interest, that would be insane).
Just noticed that the 1988 $50 would belong in the “Almost Serial Numbers” thread.
After all, it is an almost repeater.
Almost only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades...LOL
There’s an awful lot of things which used to be considered so common and lacking in any collectors value, and that are now becoming scarce, that I wish I would’ve put some away when I had the chance. Don’t know how much this would apply to some small head $50 notes, but you never know
$50,s can be unique, however in the real world, i personally dont care for them
As they are an odd ball in my world, would rather have 2- 20,s and a 10, also
Here in Las Vegas $50,s and $100,s are frawned upon at the local stores
