1923 $5 bill is an important banknote in the history of U.S. currency. It is the first and only large-size $5 Silver Certificate series to depict Abraham Lincoln. Because it was the only large size $5 silver certificate printed during the 20th century, it is always in high demand among collectors.
With the bold circular design on the face around Lincoln’s portrait, it is easy to see why this note is commonly called the “porthole” note. It appears that the portrait of Abraham Lincoln is being observed from behind or in front of a ship’s porthole.
The artists at the Merrick Mint have used an advanced technology over this modern uncirculated United States $5 bill, enhancing it with images from the 1923 Abraham Lincoln Porthole Silver Certificate Banknote, to create this collectible work of art.
