Now that area antique stores are open again, I went to spend a lazy Saturday at a few of them.  I spotted these.  I did not get them.  Are they worth the price listed on them?

The 1880 $2's are a bit tougher to locate. 

Look on eBay at the sold listings and you should get a fair idea of what they sell for.

The 1914 $5 federal reserve note is Fr.#871C. $78 is a bad price,  not a steal but looks around that VF20 range of a note. The "C" variety is harder than the very common "A"

While I have found some good deals on currency at antique stores\malls, I find in general, they are way over priced. To someone who sees it as an antique, they may feel the value is much higher than an "efficient" market place with knowledgeable buyers would pay. The 1914 $5 actually looks fairly nice for the grade. If it had no problems (tears, pin holes, staining) , I'd offer a bit less and try and get it. It looks like the paper is pretty original. There are lots of fine/VF notes with pretty crappy paper quality. It's not rare, and you wouldn't be stealing it, but could be a reasonably priced decent note to own.

The $5 1914 for $78 doesn't excite me but it isn't bad.  I would offer $65 and see if they would take it had I been there.  Most places will charge sales tax and you need to allow room for that.  $78 + tax isn't a deal.  IMO

IMHO both are 35-40% over priced. But then again I have been taking buying lessons from @MEC2  😂😂😂

They all seem a little bit overpriced but room for negotiation. Offer half of what they’re asking. Who knows.

Not a steal, but not unreasonable either.  Not much room to make money but they would probably sell on ebay at buy it now for about the same.  The 1880 $2 blue serial no. in that grade should bring mid-100's.

Thanks, everyone.  I appreciate the input.  I'd not planned to buy them, unless you all here identified them as rare or valuable.  Now I don't have to go back there this week.
