The Lower The Better

On of the visitors to my humble blog asked this. I believe this should be helpful to most
currency collectors.

And one more question, sorry, when a serial number is "low" how low does it have to be to give bill more than face vaule?

The list below shows how they estimate the worth of low numbers. The first price listed would be for bill of the serial number 00000001 as they move to EVEN HUNDREDS they mean 00000100, 00000200, etc.

Click on the picture for a larger image.

Remember every one there are so many varieties in bills and notes that are collectible. Repeating serial numbers, "radar" serial numbers and many others.

I'll do my best to help I'm mostly a coin collector and the currency collection I have is small but the community is big finding someone to buy a any type is possible.


Do you have a bill or note and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I have a 1950's ten dollar bill. Is it worth anything? My email is aaadamson@liberty.edu

Man said...

1950's ten dollar bill most in very fine condition are worth $12.00 in crisp uncirculated they are worth $60.00.

The problem is that for that year there are a hundred varieties.I'd need to know the exact date: 1950, 1950A, 1950B, etc.
Then the exact serial number with all the letters and numbers.

The most valuable are the star notes and the 1950E varieties.

i have a few $2.00 bills
1953 series A with the red seal
also one 1963 series A are these worth saving?

Anonymous said...

I have a 1950 B series $10 bill, its been in curculation, is it worth anything?

Man said...

$2.00 bills 1953A, 1963A
Each is worth about $7.00 in very fine.

They are worth saving even though the government still makes $2.00 bills the 1963A is the last of the red seals.

1950 B series $10 bill
Unless it's a star note then just face value.

My name is Matthew. I have a 1950 20 dollar bill. It was in crisp condition then I let my mom hold onto it and she folded it. The numbers on it are as follows... D 70575990 B

Man said...

1950 20 dollar bill. It was in crisp condition then I let my mom hold onto it and she folded it. The numbers on it are as follows... D 70575990 B

In crisp it would have been around $40.00.

With one fold it would be about $27.50.

I have a dollar bill, series 2003A, with the serial number D38888889B. The 4 black numbers indicating the printing city are all 4's. It is in fair condition, with no tears or missing corners. The ink is not faded but it does have a few small, light stains on it. Can you tell me how much it is worth? Can you please send me a reply by email? *******@comcast.net

These are matching numbers and only 6 are matching so it's about $3.75 with the ink damage.

It's rarely seen at auction so about $1,000.00 you may want to grade it.

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much! I will have it graded this weekend, I had no idea it was so valuable. I just thought it was interesting. So what if i had pulled the whole bundle? I had it in my hands the 0000001 to 0000100 all in order. but only kept the 0000001.

Man said...

So what if i had pulled the whole bundle? I had it in my hands the 0000001 to 0000100 all in order.

It goes down fast, 00000002 would be $200, 00000003 would be $100 by the time you get to 00000100 it would be around $20.

Hi ! I have a beautiful 1896 US silver certificate from the "educational series" along with a 1873 US fractional currency fifty cents 4th issue (Sam Dexter), both in very good condition ( no tears, no stains, no pin holes, one fold crease in the 1896 silver cert.) and was wondering their value. Also have a 1928 US $2 red seal with what I was told has a "third printing" error as the red ink is off set and was wondering what the value of this bill might be. It is also in very good shape, crisp, no tears, no stains, no pin holes and no crease. Thank you in advance for any help and information you may provide. You are so kind!--Kathy

Man said...

1896 US silver certificate from the "educational series"
Assuming the $1 note $150.00.

1873 US fractional currency fifty cents 4th issue (Sam Dexter)
About $12.00

1928 US $2 red seal with what I was told has a "third printing" error as the red ink is off set
Depends on how much the ink is off set it would start at $50.00 and go up fast from that point if the error is major.

I have a 1957 $1.00 silver cert. star note 00003619 A
It has a small A7 at the bottom right
it has a small A1 top left

I also have a 1957 $1.00 silver cert NOT a star note A00003619 A
Bottom right # A1
Top # A1

Both crisp uncirculated do you think there is any value.
I know most worn circulated silver cert are wroth pretty much $1.00 -$2.00 each
Thanks for your help.

Man said...

1957 $1.00 * 00003619 A about $30.00

1957 $1.00 A 00003619 A about $7.50

But you may get slightly more by selling them together since they have the same serial number, about $45.00 for the set.

Another question for you... I have a Silver Swiss coin from 1916 and it's 1 fr. It says Helvetia on the front with a lady resting on a sheild and there is a b under the wreath on the back. Any ideas? I also have a 1/2 fr. From 1952.

Man said...

Assuming both coins are from Switzerland.

1916 1 franc about $2.00
1952 1/2 franc about $1.00

Both contain 83.5% silver which is the majority of their value.

I have a 1950 A ten dollar Federal Reserve Note. It's in very good condition with only a minor fold in the center and very slight wear overall. It's a star note and the serial number starts with a "J." In addition ,the flag on the back above the U.S, Treasury appears to be upside down.

Any ideas on whether this is pretty common or unusual and what a potential value might be? Thanks!

The "upside-down" flag is just an optical illusion.

Are bills with the serial numbers G00746540E series 2006 or G00404402I series 2003A worth anything and also what does the repeted numbers in the four corners of the center of the bill mean in this case its a 7 and are there any that will raise the value, whats there significance.

Nothing extra.

what does the repeted numbers in the four corners of the center of the bill mean in this case its a 7
Those are the Federal Reserve Banks district numbers. The are from 1-12 and are the same as the district letters A-L.

* A1: Boston, MA
* B2: New York, NY
* C3: Philadelphia, PA
* D4: Cleveland, OH
* E5: Richmond, VA
* F6: Atlanta, GA
* G7: Chicago, IL
* H8: St. Louis, MO
* I9: Minneapolis, MN
* J10: Kansas City, MO
* K11: Dallas, TX
* L12: San Francisco, CA

They hold no special value.

Ebay is your best bet.
A coin/currency forum where people are actively looking for these types.
You can try a coin shop but unless uncirculated it probably won't sell.

--About $12.00 correct this bill was printed between 1963-1965 but is carries the same design as a 1950 so they just added D when O'Hay came into office.

and the flag is hanging upside down on the building.
