Reply to XXXXX XXXXX's Post: It is a 10 cents paper bill from around 1875. Not sure what else to say. It is old US paper money that the face value is 10 cents.

Reply to XXXXX XXXXX's Post: It is just paper money for around 1875 to late 1895 issued by the US in paper form but the value is 10 cents.

What you have is called fractional currency or 10 cent note.


Yours could have varied values depending on the year and condition.


Ebay is a very good place to establish value for an item.


Since eBay's bidders are world wide, a more reasonable value can be established, than using your local coin shop.


Depending on your bill value and condition it could be worth $5 to several hundred dollars.


Below is a link to a 10 cent bill that sold on eBay for $107.50
