Series of 1882 $5 Brown Back – Group 17 – Borrowed Early Five Dollars

Group 17 – Borrowed Early Five Dollars

Group 17 plates, prepared in the late 1890s and early 1900s, utilize the distinctive fancy FIVE DOLLARS found on notes from group 6, 7, 10, and 12. Group 16 notes usually have rather plain title layouts that are similar to or the same as those found on the Series of 1902. Group 3 was adopted as the series standard once group 17 had run its course.
