I have a 1974 series 5$ bill with a misprint on back bottom left corner and I'm wondering if it is of any value (other than its original 5$ value) thanks for your time

Answer
Hello Mimi,

While this is a minor error it does add to the value of the note.

I would expect an error of this magnitude to add $5 to $20 to the value - Its hard to tell the condition of the note without a picture of the front but I would estimate that this note would sell for $10 to $25 at auction.

Thanks for your question.
