1950-C $20 Bill, A-A

Have any $20 bill and want to know its value? Leave a comment

This is the oldest twenty dollar bill that I own. Despite the 1950 year on it these were actually printed between February 1961 and March 1963. The C beneath the date was added because the design change was minor. The signatures of Smith and Dillon replaced Priest and Anderson.


Not much is different from most other notes of the 1950 series. They were common and the serial numbers continued from the previous series. The runs went into the hundreds so despite being old they became common and hold little extra value if circulated. It is safe to assume this bill is 50 years old despite the alleged short lifespan of notes this one fared well. I think I got it less than ten years ago.

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Federal Bank: $20 Note - D.C. / New York
Year: 1950-C
Printings: 7,200,000
Printed: February 1961 to March 1963
Run: 149th of the 134-153 from A53280001A - A53640000A
Value: $25.00 in EF

Unless the ATM spits out something cool this is the last $20 of interest I own. Since I hardly use the ATM it may take a while to see another.

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.

Possible Folding error about $100.00 depending on eye appeal.

I have a Series 1950 B Twenty Dollar Bill serial number G 67121097 B that's signed by Ivy Baker Priest and Robert B. Anderson. It says Washington D.C. And "Will pay to the bearer on demand". The top margin is slightly smaller than the bottom margin, it seems like out of circulation because it has a crisp crease horizontally as if it was framed for a long time that way, but other than that it's in perfect condition. I have no idea the value of this but I've been saving it for a long time and I'm considering parting with it. Thank you for your time!!

About $25.00 very common even in high grade.

I have a 1985 $20 bill, Dallas,Tx. k94602766a. I've tried to search for other currency with same s/n. Verified its not counterfeit, does it have value?

Man said...

1985 $20 bill, Dallas,Tx. k94602766a

This is a common note.
K-A through K-B were common for 1985.
Just $20.00

That said many counterfeits were made in the 1980s so you may need to go to a bank to verify. But most likely if you got it in your change recently then it is fine an real.

Normis said...

Thank you. What other info can you give me on this s/n, I can't seem to find anything on it?

Man said...

That is because no other information exists.

Serial numbers are used for printing and not tracking.

Once printed it is not followed. Unless the FBI marked this money for tracking serial numbers are only important to track printing amounts.

So K-A is all that is important since they printed a full run of notes.

I have a question I have a 2004 20$ bill that is missing the green seal. I have brought it to s shop he looked at it under a light he didnt see it inbrotated in it the was nothing there. He did say it is in extra fine condition and offered me 40 for it I had too of them so I sold him 1. What is the value of the bill I have left and how bad did I screw myself?

Man said...

2004 20$ bill that is missing the green seal...extra fine condition

Partial Missing Overprint error about $75.00 it would cost $50-$100 to verify by PCGS. But a verified bill may double the value.

It is up to you to accept the $40 or ask for more.
You can try selling on eBay or have it graded and wait until the value increases.

I want to add to the last post.. Ive just recently discovered fingerprints on the back 3 of them n they look like they were printed in it

Could you tell me the dollar value of a 2004 20 dollar bill printed: EJ02904920 J10 with signatures Marin & Snow. And how might one determine to find the value in star notes?

About $22.00 value is based on printings.

If 640,000 or less it has the most value.

Look at the printings on...

the lower the printings the better.

I just got back from the bank and out of the ATM I got two twenties that are misprinted. The entire bill is shifted up, so there is ant a top boarder and the bottom border is twice as big. Also, it is a star note with a cereal # ek00256812. Is this worth any more than face value?

The Minor Faulty Alignment does not add value, the bills are about $22.00 each if circulated.

I have a 1996 $20.00 bill. On the reverse side, It is misprinted black ink on the green. I can see part of the front of the bill printed on the back side of this bill. Jacksons name, "Jacks" on the lower side of the bill (reversed)and the black ink is angled to the top right
where the word in reverse reads
Fede, part of the word federal. I would say the misprint is about 40% on the back of the bill. What would this be worth?

You find it where you wrote it.

I think it is here:
LINK

Here was the response:
a banded pack of 100 1990 20 dollar bills uncirculated and consecutive numbered. They are federal reserve bank of san Francisco. Starting serial number L04521425c

Assuming all are CH-CU grade then about $40 each but ungraded they are $25 each.

The consecutive and band do not add any significant value.

I have 5 sequentially numbered $20 bills issued 2004 in mint condition EF06319853C - EF06319857C - are they worth anything more than face value? Will they be in the future if I hang onto them?

Man said...

Have a $100 bill from 1950, circulated. Serial is E06788001A, top left has a "C" & fed reserve in circle on left says "B" if that matters. The series is 1950 "B" signed by Robert B Anderson. Also has a "C24" on the bottom right. I see all sorts of prices and I really just want to get rid of it but held onto it for so long that I feel like I have to get a little extra for it.

They are still common but I also noticed that they are not circulating as much. I guess the color stands out so bank pull them from circulation easier.

Hi there! I happened across a 1950 series B that seems to be improperly aligned or miscut on the front only. The top boarder os very thin, almost not there, yet the back and the rest of the bill seems to be proportionate. I'm just curious if I should hold onto this or not. Thanks! (If you link me somewhere where I can send a picture I'm more than happy to!)

Not necessarily, the security thread that glows was not added until 1990.

Thank you! It's been circulated so I don't know if I'd call it very fine condition! LoL! Also my Mom recently passed away and while going through her folders of documents, in with her birth certificate was a Series 1957 Silver Certificate Dollar Bill, some creases but it has the blue seal on the right side under the serial number "I 01750995 A" other than the creases from being in with her birth certificate it seems to be in pretty decent shape. I'd like to have an idea of its value. It's going back into the folder but I'll probably get something to put it in to help preserve it for mu son or something of that nature.
Thanks

Sorry for you loss, I can't imagine how tough this is.

As for the note they are very common about $3.00 in very-fine.
Very-fine is the same as circulated in most cases.

Thank you very much for the condolences, it means a lot!

What would you recommend for something to store it in to preserve the bill for my son?
