A rare $5 bill presented to the U.S. Vice President in 1905 is expected to sell for a cool $300,000 at auction. The historic note was given to Charles Fairbanks – Theodore Roosevelt’s No. 2 – by the First National Bank of Fairbanks, Alaska, as a memento from the frontier city named after him.
It was one of only four notes of its kind in the $5 denomination that were issued by the bank, and has been passed down the generations as a treasured family heirloom.
