Summer of George

Do you have a dollar bill and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Last time I found a Where's George note I kind of went on a rant. To recap it is a site where people stamp notes in order to track them, which I found slightly offensive.

At this point I will not say much but this note I found it typical of Where's George note. Meaning it is fairly
new yet in horrible shape. I do not know if the stampers only doing this to old notes or people tend to manhandle the note more when they try to identify the stamp.


This stamp is says:
LOG ON 
IT IS 
FUN 
FREE 
www.WHERESGEORGE.COM 

With boxes around the series year and serial number. Again I partially blocked the number to keep the game going, yes even though I am not a fan I do not feel like ruining someone's fun.
             
Original page.

The bill was first entered in Illinois back in March of 2008 later that same year it ended up in Vermont then almost two years of travel it ended up here with me, which I will pass on. The bill has traveled about 1,000 miles so far but I doubt it will last another three years.

From the initial user profile here is Blimey's stats:

This guy is not as obsessed with stamping notes as others on the site.l

Here's the original stats...

No extra value the blue seal is considered damage.

Thanks for the heads up. Quick follow-up: Why is the blue seal considered damage?

Man said...

Why is the blue seal considered damage?

From the few that people have sent to be graded they came back as a Solvent error.
This is when a cleaning fluid gets on the ink at the printing but this can be recreated at home so it is damage. It is an after printing error so no extra value.

I have 4 successive uncirculated $100 bills 1990 E series (with Bank of Richmond, VA) and they have excess ink (like bleed) in The United States of America and along the bottoms where it says Dollars and a couple of the 100's in the corners. On the back you can read Federal reserve note and the Washington DC from the front can be somewhat seen. Would you know anything about these?

I have a 1917 dollar bill, I was wondering the value of it. Its not in good condition its been folded, has some small tares and the right side of it is torn off, on the front the "One" at the top is missing torn so far the E is missing, part of the serial number is missing, and the "One Dollar" at the bottom most of the E is gone and the R is gone. Is it worth anything?

Wow, great blog!
I have several $100, $50 and $10 bills all from 1950, a $20 from 1934 and a $5 silver certificate from 1953, all in fair worn condition, some with writing on them. What, if any, value over face value do they have? Do you need to know serial #'s for these?
I also have an 1888 silver dollar, also fair condition. What might that be worth?

Serial numbers would be helpful if you want more accurate values, but generally in low grades they are just $2.00 above face value.

1888 silver dollar, also fair condition about $35.00

I have a 2006 $1 note with a signature ontop of the Secretary of the Treasury signature. The signature is partially covered by the green Dept. of Treasury stamp. Serial # e34030998h. Could an employee sign these bills as they are being printed.

If you mean the signature is under the seal it would be a rare error.

When notes are defective someone at the press takes and signs the notes and they are taken to be burned. If they escape burning then it is possible.

That said I suspect this was done by someone outside the mint and is not special in anyway. A photo would be helpful.

Very minor Offset Printing error about $15.00 it happens when the wet ink from the front gets transferred to the back plate. Then for a few notes the back plate has two images until the ink is used up.

Hi, I have a silver certifricate that I would like to know the value on, please. It's a 1928A with a blue seal.The numbers are "N67650144A". on the back, in the lower left, hand corner there is the number 2024. The bill itself is in overall pretty good condition. The details of the ink are still sharp.However, there is a bad bend down the middle and a horizontal bend that's hardly there and two smaller bends on the sides of middle bend that aren't bad either. I'm sorry I can't take a picture, but I hope the details are clear. Thanks in advance.

Ok I'm not saying it is a fake but it looks suspicious.

Generally when that seal is missing portions of the other black elements are also missing, the picture is not great so I can not tell if it was bleached but I would not bid on it.

The cost to have it graded first would probably be more than it's worth especially if fake.

Hopefully the auction will pick up, good luck.

Thank you for you advice and taking time to look at my link. The auction ended at $49.50. :)

I have a bit of uncirculated money that is in successive order when it comes to the serial number. I want to start by asking about the 1990 series $10 bill there are 14 of them in order from G 01627615 * to G01627629 * The last part of the number is a star which I understand to mean it is a replacement bill, because there are 14 of them (all have stars) in order and they are uncirculated, are they worth anymore than face value?

I have a series 1985 bill with the Treasury Seal and serial numbers stamped, but no ink. I received this in change at a bar around Christmas 1985 - the corners have 10 stamped in them - the numbers are not easliy read any more.

Any idea on the value? By the way, the note had just been removed from a fresh banded stack in the register - the barmaid wouldn't give us any more - she got spooked and took them back to the manager to keep - OUCH!

I'm not sure what "stamped, but no ink" means.

Sounds like some type of Insufficient Ink error around $25 to $50 but without a picture or better description it is just a guess.

Feel free to drop a link to the image here.

Sir,

Thank you for the prompt reply - by stamped, I mean that you can read the J code, serial number, and US Treasury seal, but it does not have ink - is this what you call a missing the third printing? I am attaching a picture for your review and comment.

If you read it then it has ink?

Missing Overprint error has no 3rd printing meaning no serial number, or seals.

Insufficient Ink would have the 3rd printing faded.

Missing Front Printing means the serial number and seals are visible but the 1st design including the portrait and everything is gone.

Man,

Thanks for sparking my curiosity - I had a 3rd missing overprint in good enough condition that Midwest Money in St. Louis said $100 - $150 wholesale - said it was worth $175-$225 retail.

I truly appreciate your time - other coin shops wanted to offer me between $20-$50....you rock!

Nice, all the prices you listed sound right. Coin shops and pawn shops offer 20% - 50% value so even if they're your only choice you can always do the math.
