2004-A $20 Bill, GF-B

Have a twenty dollar note and want to know its value? Leave a comment

High serial numbers have no special value but they can indicate fraud. For general circulation current U.S. notes do not go higher than 96,000,000. Higher serial numbers are intended to be used on uncut sheets or other special notes available for sale at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing Money Factory Store.


Many times people ask about "cutting errors" where the bills they have has two or even four bills on a regular size note. When I ask for the serial number it is almost always 96000001 or higher. Unfortunately I have to break the bad news that these are real uncut notes that someone cut at home to try and make a valuable error. Once an uncut sheet is cut at home it loses nearly all value.

There are a few exception to the 96-million rule. Pre-1985 the rule was 99,200,000 was the highest used in circulation and some 1985 and 1988-A series $20 bills had both as this period was the transition time.

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Federal Bank: $20 Note- Fort Worth / Atlanta
Year: 2004-A
Printings: 364,800,000
Printed: September 2005
Run: 14th of 15 from GF89600001B - GF96000000B
Value: CU(crisp-uncirculated) $22.00

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.

15 dollars worth, for Comments/Questions click here.:

Hi I really enjoy reading what people have found and what it might be worth. I have a $20 bill with a misprint. The seal with the letter I in it mishift and is on the serial numbers and signature got it out of an ATM. Its 1990 serial # I11822781 A. I wanted your advice should I sell it to buy silver. or save it Thank you for your info.

Misaligned Overprint of one color is about $75.00 in very-fine.

As the years pass this error will go up in value.

That said it will always be tough to sell, silver as you know is easy to sell.

If you are a currency collector keep it. If not then try to sell it or trade it for as much silver you can.

I have a 2004 $20 Serial # EL13991384B
The face print is way off, and a little sideways.

Looking at the front, the printed area is aligned to the very top edge of the bill, with a slight slant to the left.

It is circulated, but not in real bad shape.

Worth anything?

Minor Faulty Alignment error, no extra value.

I have $20 bill from 2004 and the markings from the back of the bill have gone through to the front, I can send a picture if it helps. I'm just checking to see if it's worth anything! Thank you!

Possible Offset Transfer error these are about $75.00 in very-fine and 100% transfer.

That said it needs to be verified in hand, pictures are not good enough and fakes do exist.
