Usually, when it comes to coins and cash in Colorado, you think about the Denver Mint. However, back in the day money also used to be printed in Fort Collins.

While I was browsing around on eBay, I came across a $5 bill that was printed by the Fort Collins National Bank in 1902.

According to its eBay listing, the specific version of  this bill is known as a "plain back" with no date range, though it's likely it was printed between 1902 to 1908.

The current listing for the Fort Collins Bank $5 bill is priced at $1,295.00. If you would like to check out the eBay listing, you can do so HERE.
