It depends on the bill's condition and series. The series is a letter that may or may not appear next to the date 1950. The printed year is often kept the same for a particular design regardless of the actual year of issue, while the series letter is changed following the appointment of a new Treasurer (or much less often, Treasury Secretary). $50 notes for 1950 were issued in 6 series - no letter, and 1950A through 1950E. E-series notes can be worth $25 to $50 above face value if circulated, more if crisp uncirculated. The other 5 series are worth less, anywhere from face value to $25 above; again, more if crisp uncirculated. The demand for these is much less than the supply. Unless yours is an absolute gem crisp uncirculated note, you're not going to get any premium for it. If it's a gem, you might get $70-$80 if you can find an interested buyer.

Please check your bill again and post a new, separate question. "E" is the highest series letter for a 1950 US $5 bill. You may be referring to the Federal Reserve District letter instead. There's more information at the question "What is the value of a 1950 US 5 dollar bill?".

There are no cars on a two dollar bill. You have a novelty item.

Um, yes. The US is currently printing banknotes in $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 denominations.

None of them. 1950-series $10 bills remain common among collectors. There's more information at the question "What is the value of a 1950 US 10 dollar bill?".

To clear things up, the bill wasn't printed in Philadelphia. That's the Federal Reserve District that distributed the bill, but it was printed in Washington. Please see the question "What is the value of a 1950 US 100 dollar bill?" for more information.
