I have always found these to be very interesting and intriguing notes. I recently acquired my first example, and I've been trying to learn more about these very unique notes. My understanding is that these were printed for all 12 districts, is this correct? Also, has anyone attempted to collect all 12 districts, and if so, are there any that are particularly rare or difficult to get? Please share your pictures. Meanwhile, here's mine:

They are very popular to say the least.I have collected all 12 districts (several times over) in both circulated and uncirculated grades.I found the Richmond district to be the toughest in unc (much easier in circ grades) and Kansas is also tougher (again, in unc).I have since sold off many and only have 5 districts left in uncirculated grades...a few more in circ.The first pic are all circulated.The G-A and L-A are the low serial numbers known for their districts.

Yes, very collectible series, though the 1928B LGS notes are even tougher. 

The 1934 $5 notes were in print from October 1934 to May 1937.

Here is a star from December 1935. 120,000 L stars were printed in total, with the last in March 1937.

Going a bit off topic but for educational purposes, I will post. 

The 1934 LGS has 12 regular and star districts, printed and released. 

1928B is another matter.

I am awaiting the HA block, and should have it in hand any day now. 12 districts printed 1928B LGS $5's, but above is a complete district set. How is this complete you ask ?? These were the three districts that released into circulation, while the following blocks were printed but destroyed: AA, BB, CA, DA, EA (would have been key), GA, IA, JA and KA.

These were in print from September 1932 to October 1935. 1928B, LGS, 1928C, and 1928D were in part printed along side 1934 LGS $5's.

E is the Key. F and J are Semi-Key.

Awesome info, thanks guys! Thank you for posting some great pictures too. I think you have convinced me to dive down this new collecting path. I think I will stick to the 1934's as the 1928B's might be beyond my budget for now. So it's one down with 11 to go, wish me luck 🙏 !!!

$5 1934 LGS is not impossible though the limiting factor is going to be the Richmond. Also depends on if you are collecting circulated, CU, GEM or 66/67.

Circulated - Easy, even with some stars.

CU - More challenging, but not that hard. The only “easy” star at this level is Chicago and even that is going to cost a few bucks.

GEM - Most are doable but your E, F and J will become quite expensive.

66/67 - Very expensive, and forget the stars at this level, as there are almost none. 1934 LGS at this level are becoming like 1928’s.

In fact, forget the CU/GEM stars outside of the Chicago, unless a new note is discovered.

There is an ungraded CU A-* in a well known collection. Both a PMG 64EPQ D-* and a PMG 64EPQ K-* in well known collections. There is also a PCGS 66EPQ C-* that has not been seen in a while.

Yeah, just Chicago.

You've certainly come to the right forum for this topic! If I may offer a couple search links:

Light Green Seal    and   LGS

Hours of fascinating reading ensues...

Thanks HB. I collect primarily non-stars, however I only stick to 64/65/66PPQ if possible but will also buy the occasional 63 if the note appeals to me (I have nothing below that in my collection). The stars would certainly be nice to have, but I generally try to complete the series with the non-stars. I have learned that patience is truly a virtue when it comes to collecting US currency, and that the right note will come along sooner or later.

You should have fun with this set. The 66’s are going to be a bearcat. 64Q should be relatively easy, with 65’s readily available on most.

Here is an A-Star.  It is one of four consecutive.

For the star notes, I have seen A, B, C, D, E, and G in CU condition. A good friend of mine who is not on this forum has the E-Star in CU.

Loading this page is....fun.

Another thing to consider. There is Light Green Seal and then there is Light Green Seal. Not all of them are the same. Earlier LGS and Later LGS will have different hues. More Yellow-Green are more desirable.

I agree.
In fact I've bought some notes with a lower grade than I already have in my set just because it has a lower serial number and a more yellow-green seal.

There are also the LIGHT green seals and the light GREEN seals. Of course - there are the yellow green dark green seals which are dark green seals, but yellow green. Which are unlike the darker light green seals. Which can be light green. But dark. 

Try and get the scot lindquist standard guide.
