Are $5s usually well-worn?

I use $5 on almost a daily basis and are very common around the house. I'd assume they get used about as much as the $1 bills. I do see more bad $5 then any other bill. Probably has to due with use plus the number made (less then $1, more then $10).

It could also be where you live. When I lived in Portland and Seattle I was surprised at how few $10 notes circulated. It seems every time I paid with a $20, I would get back only $5 and $1, no $10 bills in the drawer. You almost had to go to the bank to get them if you wanted them, but rarely available in commerce (and that used to annoy me a lot). So given that in the northwest it seems $5 circulate more than $10, your observation isn't surprising.

A few days ago, I read something about the life expectancy fo US paper money....... Basically, the lower the denomination, the shorter the life expectancy. $1 bills wear out quicker than $5's, which wear out quicker than $10's and so on.....

 

I thought that was kind of interesting......
