While I'm happy so many people are finding star notes it has been a while since I got one. Mostly since I hardly use cash anymore.
Then on September 25 I got this bill in my change. It is a 2003A F-Atlanta series star note.
The back is normal as you can tell.
The star note is a replacement note used by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing when a defect or error is found on the regular run of notes. There is no replacement of specific serial number instead they replace blocks of notes with the newest star notes. Since less then 1% of notes need replacement star notes are scarce.
Still they are not rare since they are printed by the hundred thousand or million. They are printed in runs of a specific amount and the lower the run the more it is worth to collectors.
- Less than 320,000 printed is lowest.
- Exactly 320,000 printed is very-low.
- Between 320,000 and 640,000 is low.
- Exactly 640,000 is medium.
- More than 640,000 is high and normal.
Type/Country: 1 Dollar/United States
Run: 4th from F09600001* - F12800000*
Value: $2.50 in VF
It has plenty of folds and is probably worth less then listed, but that is true with most collectibles.
Do you have currency 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.
