Rarity, scarcity, or just plain old hard to find. Most likely the latter because $2.00 notes are not rare or particularly valuable. Yet to receive one in your change is very unlikely. The only scarcer form of U.S. money to get as change is the half dollar coin.
The only reason I got these two $2.00 bills is that the I knew the cashier. Which is a major point since people have been arrested when other cashiers have not recognized these bills and the local uninformed authorities gets involved.
The worst forms of money to use in the U.S. are as follows:
- $2.00 bill - Seldom seen, believed to be fake or no longer legal.
- Susan B. Anthony dollar coin - Seldom seen, believed to be fake or a quarter.
- Half dollar coin - Seldom seen, believed to be fake or no longer legal.
- Older bills without the strip or watermark - Believed to be fake or no longer legal.
- Golden dollars - Believed to be fake or too bulky fit in register.
Now a look at the offenders.
It has been years since I got any $2.00 bills and never from 2003.
These circulating notes were only issued for the Minneapolis, MN Federal Reserve Bank but collectible star notes were issued from the other 11 Federal Reserve Banks.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 2 Dollars / United States
Date Printed: October 2003
Run: 2nd in the I00000001B - I25600000B group
Value: $2.00 in Fine(one is fine the other not so much)
I would like to state clearly these notes are real and legal. While I'm not sure about the local state laws they should be accepted without incident.
Do you have a two dollar 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.
