San Francisco


Five Dollars




Federal Reserve Note




2003* $5.00 Fed Reserve *STAR* Note

We have here a $5 FRN  **STAR**  note.  The  $5.00 Federal Reserve Star Note of 2003* in Crisp Choice Uncirculated condition, a real addition to any small note collection.  Check out the photos.  You can enlarge the photos.  It was signed by Secretary of the Treasury John Snow who resigned after only a couple years making these even rarer as no more will bear his signature.  The Treasurer is Rosario Marin.  Since Snow is gone this note had a very short print life having already replaced by the 2003A series which was then superceded by the 2006 series.  In addition to that, this is the rare San Francisco STAR note.  Star notes are only used to replace defective notes pulled in the printing process as replacements.  They are much harder to find than the regular notes from the series.  These may be the rarest of all $5.00 star notes issued in the last 20 years!  The San Francisco Fed Bank is only one of two of the 12 to issue any star notes in the 2003 Series!!!  If you have this one, you have half of 'em!!!

Book value for the note is $35 in CU-63, but retailers and Shop at Home TV often charge much more than book value just because they are so hard to find.  The note is free of holes, writing, ink, stains etc.   It is a beautiful specimen of US Currency.  The note has the transitional design that predates the current colorized series.   Only 3.2 million Star notes were printed for the Federal Reserve Bank.

So take advantage of the opening bid and own a quality piece of America's Old Paper Money.  I will ship the STAR note for FREE.  View My Other Items For Sale and save on shipping!  Thanks for looking and Happy Bidding!  Be sure to Add me to your Favorite Sellers list so you can find me again!  I have a special group of notes now listed in my Ebay store all higher grade notes with Buy-it-Now prices, they are a select group availabe there for my customers to see.  More of these notes are available right now in my store!  Visit My eBay Store
