Dolla Dolla Bill Y'all

Do you have a bill 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.

Whew! I've been flooded with currency question over the past month. It is a good thing because it shows people are collecting. I understand that it is harder these days to find older or unique coins which is why notes are getting more popular.

This Small-Size Currency book is the best book for looking up modern currency prices although the values listed are slightly high. A modern note is any small size from 1928 until now.

As for where to sell your newly found bills, hmmm that is more difficult. If you don't know a good coin dealer then I suggest eBay or join a coin forum.

For most circulated notes you can expect to get $2.00 over the face value.
In crisp-uncirculated expect double face value.

Here are some notes to look out for...
Bill: $1 1935A serial #M-A (only two notes are known, but hey you never know)
Value: $8,250.00 in CH-CU($250.00 increase since 2008)

Bill: $5 1928D serial #F-A
Value: $6,000.00 in CH-CU($1,000.00 increase since 2008)

Bill: $100 1981 serial #E-*
Value: $3,000.00 in CH-CU

Other notes like $1 1988A Web-Fed Press Printings average $50.00. These were made with a special machine for a short run. They are by there serial numbers and are semi-rare.

Keep up with the questions and if find any special notes then I'll post them also. Recently I found a $1 1969C #F-B which is not worth anything more than $1.00 in circulated condition.
I also found a $20 bill from 2004 that has four zeros making it worth $22.50, not much but still cool.

Do you have a bill 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 set of 3 1983/84 US Olympic proof coins -- 1983-S $1, 1984-S $1, 1984-W $10. According to the PCGS price guide, the set is worth $400. But individually, the prices vary widely.

PCGS #9607, the 1983-S $1 Olympic, for example:
Grade 69 ==> $45
Grade 70 ==> $5000!

These are proof sets, so how can they vary? And do I really need to send in proof sets of commemoratives like this for grading?

Thanks SO MUCH for your help!

--goneflyin

Man said...

In PF-67 which is the most common grade for these types the prices for 1983/84 US Olympic proof coins
1983-S $1 is about $13
1984-S $1 is about $13
1984-W $10 is about $260

Unless yours are graded assume the lower grade of PF-67.

Grade 69 ==> $45
Grade 70 ==> $5000!

The reason for the price difference is that they base prices on how many coins were submitted. Out of 1000 PCGS coins submitted only 1 or 2 made the 70 grade so the price is based on that.
In real life cut the PCGS price by half, although the cheapest I've seen a PF-70 1983-S is $3200.

And do I really need to send in proof sets of commemoratives like this for grading?

Get a grading book for these coins and look carefully to see if the seem like PF-68 or better. If not then it is not worth it to send them.

I have an 8R.Z.1882.J.S.10D.20G. Mexican Libertad coin. I was wondering of it's value if it's genuine.

Thanks in Advance.

Man said...

8R.Z.1882.J.S.10D.20G. Mexican Libertad coin

These coins are real and in silver, but there are many fakes.

Mexican 8 Reales generally in extra-fine are $20.00. There many sub-varieties plus condition may triple the price.

Fakes are coated in silver and more or less worthless. Fakes are hard to spot.

Hi!
I bought a $20 bill out of my register today, thinking it might be worth something. It's a 1928 A series Federal Reserve note. It has a big 3 on it and says Bank of Philadelphia "Redeemable in gold". The serial is C05245893A. It's still it pretty good shape, considering that it has been in circulation. Is it worth anything?

Man said...

$20 1928A, C05245893A

In good about $30.00.
Good is described by having tears, dirty, stains, and/or ink marks. Also no crispness and many folds.

In very fine about $100.00.
Very fine is described by having some crispness and 4 or 5 heavy folds. No tears, dirt, stains, and/or ink marks.

Yours is most likely somewhere in the middle.

Congrats that is a good find.

How about those 2 dollar bill?

Anonymous said...

HI,

I have a $10 bill from series 1999 with a star at the end of the serial number. In the top left corner it says F6 and the bottom left it has C2

-and the serial number is BF17070888 *

Do you know how much it is worth? It is in a circulated state.

Man said...

How about those 2 dollar bill?

They will always fetch a premium but very few are worth more then $6.00.

$10 bill 1999 F17070888 * circulated state

It should be BF17070888* and if so then it is about $11.00 mostly because of the condition.

If the serial number is correct the year must be wrong so I need the right year.
If the year is correct and the serial is correct you may have an error.

chrys said...

I have a few US trade dollars that I bought in Laos for a bargain hoping they'd fetch a good price but I am not really sure if they are even valuable. Anyway, do you have any information, links that you can refer me to get more information.One is dated 1878, with an eagle at the back and it says "S" , probably SanFrancisco. I assumed that's where it was minted or something.

Man said...

US trade dollar 1878-S

It was minted San Francisco and in fine condition it is worth $140.00.

4,162,000 were minted. As long as there are no chop marks the price should be the same.

At CoinFacts.com you get a ton of good information. This is just a small part of silver dollar market. For better info get a book especially for trade dollars but if I found a good site I'll put it up.

CHRYS said...

Thanks MAN, I think this particular coin (1878-S, US Trade Dollar) I would consider between Very-Good and Good if they are indeed real. I still have to establish that fact.

Man said...

Lots of Chinese cast fakes exist. Most are easy to notice because the are blurry and contain bubbles and sand pits. Some are real good fakes but the weight often gives it away.

CHRYS said...

Yes true, I must weigh mine. Apparently about 90% of US Trade Dollars that are sold on ebay are fakes. A genuine trade dollar must weigh at least 27grams.

Hello, I would like to know how much a 1963 5$ bill with red lettering is worth?

I have one 1950D US$10 bill that I actually want to sell. It's in nearly perfect condition (only two dog ears).

I already asked my bank whether it's real, because it's in such good condition considering it's age, and they confirmed it's legit (water stamp, colored spots, no in god we trust).

New York Seal.

Can you please tell me how much I can ask for that? Thank you so much...

knopf

Man said...

1950D $10 bill New York

In the condition you described it would be EF-AU (extremely fine-about uncirculated).

New York is the most common, Dallas and Cleveland are the least common. That NY series runs on average about $17.00 in the condition you described.

If the two folds weren't there it would be $22.50.

Currently on eBay those bills sell for $15.00. Which is good since they are uncertified.

I pulled a 1883 Liberty Nickle out of a 2 dollar nickle roll the other day, it is black like it went through a fire or something, however, every detail is there, her individual hairs, "Liberty" on her band it looks great except for the color, what is the value? thanks.

Man said...

1883 Liberty Nickel

First do NOT clean it the blackness proves it is genuine.

Second there are 2 types I'll list both in extremely-fine values.

1883 without the word CENTS on the reverse is worth about $12.00.

1883 with the word CENTS on the reverse is worth about $80.00.

Great find.

Anonymous said...

I am thrilled! I wonder if I can get it professionally cleaned??

Anonymous said...

Oh, it has no "CENTS" BTW but just as well, I am not selling it!
it really looks brand new, just covered with carbon.. I really like these change machines folks dump their change into... they done look at it closely and then the coin place machine rolls it up! all for us to find! (I found a 1899 indian head penny in a $25 box of pennys I got from the bank!)

I think I will get a $100 box of Nickels next!

Thanks

Man said...

I am thrilled! I wonder if I can get it professionally cleaned??

You probably could but I would advise against it. Although it looks unappealing many "black beauties" are graded MS-60 and higher. Once they are cleaned they can not get graded.

The value comes with the details and cleaning it will take off the black and the surface details.

Nickels often turn black so it is known in coin community.

Good luck keep searching.

Silpa said...

Hi, I have a few $50.00 bills, 1950D and 1969, and a 1974 $100.00 bill. Can you please tell me if they are worth more than their value.

Man said...

I'll give value in crisp-uncirculated but to be accurate I would need the serial numbers.

$50.00 bills
1950D about $75.00
1969 about $75.00

$100.00 bill
1974 about $125.00

Again only with serial numbers and condition can I give you a more accurate value, but these bills are fairly common.

Hi, my boyfriend bought $100 worth of star dollar bills, consecutively numbered from F11261901* to F11262000*. They're just about mint condition, as they've been through the bank, then sent to the store. They're series 2003 A. Not sure what other info you might need...

I'd be glad to send you a scan :)

Thanks in advance,

Man said...

$100 worth of star dollar bills, consecutively numbered from F11261901* to F11262000*. They're just about mint condition...series 2003 A

No scans needed.

Very nice purchase for one reason in particular they are called birthday note. This is a novelty listing because they can form 11-26-1986 or Nov. 11, 1986.

Although they are not the key date run they should be worth at least $5.00 each. Grand total about $500.00.

If sold to the right collector or coin shop they might pay extra for the novelty serial number. This collector has a site that sells similar notes check out the prices he also buys them in bricks. LINK .
He may buy them for less as that serial number is more common.

I have a 1950 E series $100 star note printed in SF and in uncirculated condition with no stains, folds or dirt that is still crisp. the serial # is L01072117* My 2007 currency price guide doesn't even list star notes for that year and only shows notes being printed in three mints. What is the value on this note?

Man said...

1950 E series $100 star note printed in SF and in uncirculated condition with no stains, folds or dirt that is still crisp. the serial # is L01072117*

Money is only printed in Washington DC and Fort Worth, Texas.

The cities are the district seal for the federal bank there are 12 of them in all. For the 1950E only 3 Federal Reserve Districts issued – New York, Chicago and San Francisco.

A $100 1950E L01072117* has a book value of $3,500.00 in CH-CU.
This is a very good note only 144,000 were made and last I saw in real life one that was certified sold for $2,000.00 that was about 7 tears ago.

Great bill.

Man said...

This bill is about $15.00.

18 2004 series A ten dollar bills...serial numbers. GD00045827A through GD00045844A.
These bills are about $10.00 each it is too soon for a real increase in value but the leading zeros will eventually bring a small premium.


1928-A: one dollar (silver dollar paper bill) condition is good.
I really need a serial number because some are worth $12.00 while others are worth $400.00 in that grade.
There are ten varieties only with a serial number can i give an accurate value it is a great bill either way.

Man said...

1950 $100 bill series E Chicago Illinois.

The star would be in the serial number. In the next example the first is a star note the second is not.
Example: L01072117*, A03835718A

Your bill would be about $175.00 in very fine it is one of the more sought after notes because of it's low printing.

I don't know what you mean when you say "The Federal Reserve note is BELOW" but any serial number misalignment is worth at least $100.00.

Try to scan an image and drop a link because if if you plan to sell it any Error Buyer would want to see an image.

Jay said...

I think your blog is great! And now I have a little problem... although I suppose it's a good problem to have!

An older member of my family has recently been put into a care facility. This person is from the depression era and stashed money. Nobody knew about this until recently when going through their belongings. We have found about 1000 pieces of currency in $100s, $50s, very few smaller bills. This is all this person has, and we plan on placing it in a bank for their continued care. BUT FIRST... Much of this is crisp new bills, The dates I've seen most frequently are 1985, 1981, 1977 a few 1950s and 1969s - probably more of those older dates, but haven't looked that closely at everything yet. What I would like to do is go through and determine if there's anything valuable, sell it, and increase the base value of the money. What is the best method of proceding? It seems overwhelming. Maybe catalog everything in a spreadsheet first? Help me please...

THANKS!

Man said...

A spreadsheet is the best way. It will help with local dealers, insurance companies or if you want to email it.

Any future buyer would want to know the following...

Bill
Year
Series
Serial Number
Condition

For example:
$100
1950

G04123000A
Very-fine

$100
1950
E
G14123000A
Crisp-uncirculated

The first(1950) is about $125.00
the second(1950E) is about $500.00

I can help if you have an email address, you can get a free Gmail because it can support spreadsheets
and I can send you back the estimated value without having to download anything.

Jay said...

OK... I'll start on the spreadsheet then, with the information you've identified. It might take me a little while, but I'll get back to you when I'm done.

Thanks!

Man said...

1935A U.S. 1 dollar silver certificate, number N94234537B

This one has 2 varieties...
If the back number is 930 or higher it is about $75.00.

If the back number is 426-929 it is about $6.00.

The back plate used to print the design was changed towards the end of printing so it is rarer.

It sounds choice crisp-uncirculated which is great making it worth about $25.00.
The last bill of that series was D99360000A meaning yours is close to the end of the run and that is why it is so new looking.

Thanks I only wish I had enough time to write more.

$10 bill, 1934, serial number A76300962A, Boston, signed by Henry Morgenthau, Jr. as Secretary and W.A. Julian as Treasurer.

It should be a 1934-A note worth about $11.00

There is also a small F114 on the lower right hand side of the bill,

This is the Face Plate Number which is the number used to tell which specific plate printed this specific bill.

with another F in the upper left corner.

This is the plate position, where that specific bill was before it was cut from a larger sheet.

There are also four 1's that appear, two on the left and two on the right side of the bill.

It is the district number it identifies which federal bank distributed the note. In this case Boston, MA.

Man said...

$50.00 bill 1996 series that has a blue seal on it.

That is because this is not possible unless it was an error.

Insufficient ink may cause this error. But it can also be caused during washing with a bleach like detergent. If it is an error it may be worth a few dollars over face value.

1999 us $5

with multiple ink error


the mint seal is a darkish blue ish color as if it is missing the yellow ink,as with the serial numbers.
This is an Insufficient Ink error it is not an official error since it is easy to fake and hard to verify. A little acid turns it blue. But yours mat be real.

next on the back the green ink appears to be lighter then other $5 dollar bills also some of the inks from the borders on the front came threw to the back like specs of inks as with the serial numbers, not the numbers themselves but the specs of the blue ink came threw to the back and there is a visible reverse 3 that did make it to the back of the bill in the "bluish' color

This is an Offset Printing error, it is also a sign an Ink Smear error.

All these errors could be explained by a Ink Smear error involving a solvent at the U.S. government end.

But it also can be done in the oven with some vinegar.

If real this would be a Multiple Error note worth about $250.00 if it was certified. To get it certified it would cost about $45.00.

So the guy who offered $100.00 was being fair. I'd hate to pay for certification only to find out it's fake.

Good luck

Dear Expert:
I have a series of 6 $20 dollar bills in numerical order series of 1934A printed in New York. They have had limited circulation and I believe are in excellent condition. What might these be worth?

Also, I have a series of 15 $20 dollars bills, in numerical order, series 1996, that have not been in circulation—are these worth more than their face value? If not, do you think they will ever be?

Finally, I have a series, in numerical order, of 8 $50 dollar bills series 1996-- that have not been in circulation—are these worth more than their face value? If not, do you think they will ever be?

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

LLY

Man said...

6 $20 dollar bills in numerical order series of 1934A printed in New York.

Depends on serial number but they average about $35.00 each in that condition. Of course certain serial numbers are worth much more.

About the other notes you mentioned in perfect condition would be about $5.00 above face value, if your lucky.
It would be around 40 years before you can guarantee a profit from the newer bills and that may not be much over $5.00 face value.
Of course keeping them in perfect condition will help.

----- hi its me again, hey who could buy that bill from me?

Man said...

hi its me again, hey who could buy that bill from me?

If it didn't have a fold any coin dealer would, but they wouldn't for a common year.

Try eBay. If it looks good it may sell well.
The price I listed is the average price you would pay to buy the same bill.
The average coin dealer buys these at $105.00.

Like cars it's always more expensive to buy then sell.

Hi, I have a 5 dollar bill that has a red seal and red serial number. It is a 1963 series with serial number A 26105461 A On the top it says United States Note. Also the top left corner of the front has B4 and the bottom right corner of the front has B5. If you flip the bill over to the back the right bottom corner has a 2. Is it worth more than $5? It has one fold in the middle other than that its in good condition.

I also have a 2 dollar bill that is a 1995 series with serial number F 91205539 A On the top left corner of front has A2 and bottom right corner of front has FW A3 if you flip it over to the back the bottom right corner has a 10 Thanks

Doesn't sound like any error I know. Although occasionally the top layer is sheared off slightly leaving an odd rocky-mineral look. This is a very minor error and nothing special.

Not sure what you mean because once one side is stamped the other must be also.
If it was a lamination error the coin would be thinner than usual.

Hi! I have a 1995 web-fed $1 bill A 79179464 D ... It had 3 light folds, is still crisp, but someone wrote a bit on the front with black ink. Do you know approximately how much its worth ink and all? Thanx :)

Man said...

Well it's possible to remove the ink but you would need a professional.

Given the folds and the ink it would be less then $4.00 not worth having it cleaned since it would then only be $8.00.

Still a nice bill to have.

This is a hard error to authenticate because the sun, soap, or any chemical can cause this.

So most collectors don't put a premium to this error/damage.

It is just $5.00.

Not always it could have been chemically shrunk or washed or cut badly.

$1 notes are rarely faked but there are some 1988-A bills that are worth hundreds depending on serial number.

I have a $100.00 Federal Reserve Note 1977 Series - L -Bank of San Francisco, California. The # 12 appears on the bill 4 times on the front. The serial number is L 22273728A. Since the new 100's have come out, this one looks so very different. Could it be worth more than $100.00? The condition is not perfect, with a center fold and a bottom left corner fold. There are green "smears" on both the right and left sides, at least 1" in on both sides. Seems like the ink ran. Thanks for your insight.

1977 is still too modern to make these bills classics but I do agree once you get used to the new notes all the old ones look odd.

The error is called Ink Smear Error but a minor one maybe it would about $110.00.

I've never heard of this and it's not listed in any book. I have a feeling these may be damaged or fake.

Either way that year is common so eBay is your best bet. Try and get a several good pictures because anyone interested will not understand the description.

You may try a local coin shop and expect to get half the amount listed which is typical for dealers.

eBay was the go to place but since they're recent changes and the slowing economy it's difficult.

Join a coin forum like "coin community" or "collectors universe" and you can sell it there or trade it much easier.

You'll need good pictures.

These coins are very rare. As far as I know none exist outside exclusive collections. There is no way I can say if yours is real or not you would have to send it to be certified. Understand that fakes exist by the thousands and have a value of $35 or less.

If real silver it's about $4.00 but suspect that is just clad so only $1.00.

I was just curious as I reading about the 1999 $5 notes about having blue seals. I had aquired 2 from a bank that I used to work in. They came right from the packs that we counted out. I bought two of them as I thought something wasn't right about them. They had blue seals. I am just wondering if these actually are errors from the mint. What do you think?.

1999 $5 notes about having blue seals

Probably some sort of mint error involving solvent which is not a true error if it occurs after printing.
They are now common and most collectors do not like them so they have little or no extra value.
Did this happen at the mint? Yes.
Is this a true error? No.
But that status may change, depends on collectors.

Hello!
I'm not a collector, was when I was a kid, but I've found a 1950 E series $100 Federal Reserve Note. Serial # E03743311A, Federal Reserve stamp says " Bank of Richmond Virginia" on it.
Would this note have any value above the face value? Condition is well used but reasonably good.

Thank you very much.

1950 E series $100 Federal Reserve Note. Serial # E03743311A

This must be a 1950 not a 1950-E the series letter is not in the stamp but under the date.
It' about $120.00

Hello,

I have a 1950 d series 10 dollar bill out of Chicago. It looks as if the cutter wasn't aligned properly because the right side of the bill has a border about three tines longer than the left side, and the border at the bottom is about two and a half times larger than the top. Is this normal? There is so little info on this bill.
Thanks in advance

Unless it show a piece of another bill it is just normal. It's about $12.50.

Hi, I have a 1934, A series $100 bill, no stains or tears, some creases. It says H3 in the front bottom right corner, no stars, from Boston, MA. Can you tell me what it might be worth as well as if it's better to try to sell it on ebay or to a coin dealer? Tx!

1934, A series $100 bill, no stains or tears, some creases.

If the back number is 112 or less it's about $140.00.

If the back number is 113 or higher it's about $200.00.

It is common enough that eBay maybe your best bet but these day notes have not been selling well.

It looks like it is in circulated shape with two small dog ears on the right side and a three creases. The front image looks to be off center slightly to they left with less open space on the left than the right.

I just received a 1950 $100 bill. There is no letter under the date so I am not sure exactly what else describes it. It is in great condition with no folds or creases. There are no dog ears but it looks like it was circulated. It is from new york with a B on the left of ben franklin. The serial number is B03704733A. Any thoughts?

About $115.00 it is fairly common though.
