History: Fifty dollar interest bearing treasury notes were only printed in the United States during 1863 and 1864. The 1863 $50 interest bearing bills have a picture of three allegorical women representing  Caduceus, Justice, and Loyalty.

Interest bearing treasury notes came in many denomination, with the fifty dollar denomination being the third-lowest. In the late 1800s these old bills traded hands frequently, so most known examples are heavily worn. Remember, this was during a time in U.S. history when the state of the nation during the Civil war was in crisis, anyone who didn’t redeem these bills for their interest at the time was either supremely confident or extremely ignorant. This fact alone is why there are so few interest bearing notes known to exist.

These $50 interest bearing notes only had three separate years of issuance, meaning the time they had to compound interest was limited. While this fact doesn’t always directly impact value, there are certain collectors who collect fifty dollar interest bearing notes by their year of issuance.
