Last Months Finds

Do you have a coin 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 found these in my change a while ago and only now have I had enough time to post about them.
Obverse and reverse.
Nothing particularly grand but still something nice to find. Most are Canadian but I did find some older American coins. I also found two star notes, a one dollar note and a twenty dollar note but neither were rare. The Susan B. Anthony dollar was from my change but I believe I used, I can't find it.

The difference with a 2003P and a 2003 is core used to apply the plating. A 2003 was a copper plated zinc coin while the 2003P was a copper plated steel coin. As a result all Canadian coins with a P should be magnetic

I have a Series 1950B $20 bill, that I would like more information on. The number in the four corners of the face is 6, the serial number being F6614364A. Generally good condition, 1 crease down center. How do you tell what bank it came from, etc? Is a Priest/Anderson. The little letter in the upper left and lower right is K.

1950B $20 bill
The 1950 is the year the billed was designed and the B indicates it had a minor design change from the last bill. In this case Robert B. Anderson's signature was added. This bill was actually made in 1957.


The number in the four corners of the face is 6
This is the district number which matches the district of Atlanta and the district letter F.

the serial number being F6614364A
It is to identify how many bills are printed. The begin F matches the district. The book list F66960001A as the lowest possible for a 1950B the number you typed is wrong. You typed 7 digits it should be 8.

Generally good condition, 1 crease down center.
One fold and crisp feel means it is at least extra-fine.

How do you tell what bank it came from, etc?
They were all made at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, DC then issued to on of 12 Federal Reserve banks indicated by the district seal on older bills. It should have an F with the Bank of Atlanta encircled.

The little letter in the upper left and lower right is K.
This is plate position. Back then bills were printed in either 12 or 18 notes per sheet. That little letter indicated where that note was among the 12 or 18. "A" being the first position at the top left and either "R" or "L" at the bottom right in columns.

This is a common note and about $25.00.

I have some older bills, and I was wondering what they were worth.

$50 bill, Series 1950B
SN: B23821974A
Number on the back is 173
It's in fairly good condition with a crease down the middle. The whole bill is significantly off-center. The margin on one side is 1mm, while the other side is 6mm.

Large $1 bill, Series 1923
SN: E55816625D
The seal is blue
The number on the back is 3556.
The condition isn't very good, it has creases running both horizontally and vertically. The top edge is pretty rough as well.

$1 bill, Series 1957
SN: V58884196A
This has a blue seal as well, and the number on the back is 281. It's in what I would call circulated condition.

$2 bill, Series 1953A
SN: A60314464A
This one has a red seal, and the number on the back is 409.
Its top right corner is torn off, down to the top right edge of the 2. It has a couple of creases, and is slightly off center.

3 $2 bills Series 1976
SNs:
A07600885A
A07600887A
A07600889A
All are extra crisp uncirculated. These have postage stamps on the back displaying state flags and all are stamped Springfield, MA, Apr 13, P.M., 1976.

And finally 3 more $2 bills, Series 1976
SNs:
A09692037A
A09692038A
A09692039A
These are also crisp uncirculated, with postage stamps, but the stamps are on the front of the bills. The postage stamps are the same style state flag stamps. The stamp placed over these bills reads Cheshire, CT 06410, 1976, Apr 13, P.M.

Do you know why they were stamped (assumably) by the postal service? Do you think this would increase or decrease the value?

Thanks for all your time, it is greatly appreciated :)

$50 bill, Series 1950B
SN: B23821974A
Very minor off-center

About $50.00 unless a second design is showing the off-center may decrease the value.

Large $1 bill, Series 1923
SN: E55816625D
The seal is blue

About $30.00

$1 bill, Series 1957
SN: V58884196A
This has a blue seal

About $2.50


$2 bill, Series 1953A
SN: A60314464A
This one has a red seal

About $2.00 the tear is enough to leave the bill at face value.


$2 bills Series 1976
SNs:
A07600885A
A07600887A
A07600889A
...stamped...

About $5.00 each only because the numbers are sort of fancy. Stamping is considered damage, so these things are hard to sell for more then $2.50.


$2 bills, Series 1976
SNs:
A09692037A
A09692038A
A09692039A
...stamped

About $3.00 the numbers are not fancy and no extra value, these would be near impossible to sell for more than $2.00.


Do you know why they were stamped (assumably) by the postal service?
They were stamped by private citizen and companies because they were released on April 13, 1976.
This was proof they were first issued because they were made for years even though the date on the bill said 1976.

Do you think this would increase or decrease the value?
It decreases because it is damage, plus anyone can buy 1976 stamps and duplicate this at home.
A collector wants a perfect note.
One unconfirmed stamped note sold for $250 because it was dated April 12, 1976 a day earlier then the legal release.

Man said...

1948 penny that says "GEORGIVS VI DEI GRATIUS REX"


It is probably from Great Britain maybe Canada since you didn't mention a country.
It's about $0.10.

I have an error dollar bill, 1995 K series, its four bills that have been cut into one. Serial numbers for two are K 99661235A and K 99386235A. Portions of Washington's face are cut in areas of all four. I wanted to sell it on Ebay but wanted to know more about it's value before I do.

Man said...

$1 bill 1995 K series, its four bills that have been cut into one. Serial numbers for two are K 99661235A and K 99386235A.

This is not an error it's fake.
An uncut sheet was bought and someone cut it up to make a fake this is now worth close to nothing. It may not even be worth $1.00.

I would like to know the value of a 1935f $1.00 bill I also have a half of quarter from 1976 it reads 200 years, on the back, and @ the front it reads 1776-1976. Thanks

Man said...

1935f $1.00 bill I also have a
Depending on serial number either $4.00 or $150.00 in very fine.
The higher value is for serial numbers B71640001J - B72000000J.


half of quarter from 1976 it reads 200 years, on the back, and @ the front it reads 1776-1976

Not sure what this is but most 1976 medals or coins are just at face value.
