1999 $10 Star Note, BE-*

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

Yes I did feature this star note back in 2005 but this update is more detailed. This bill is special not only because it is a replacement note but it is scarce even among other star noes. It was the lowest printed for the 1999 series.


The final printing was 675,200. It breaks down into two partial printings of 32,000 and 3,200 and then a full run of 640,000. The odd printing was probably due to the fact these notes were among the first of the newly redesigned notes. They modified the design to add many security features and made the portrait and value larger and more legible.

There is a very minor Insufficient Ink error on the district letter and number in the upper left hand side. While it may add $5.00 or more in value I am discounting it since in such high grade it may lower the value for a regular note. I cannot say for certain what the average currency collector would think of the error.

For once this note I found in my change was the most valuable of it's type. Approximately $60.00 in choice crisp uncirculated it may not be a gold mine but it will be the one note from 1999 series that will always gain value.

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Federal Bank: $10 Note- Washington D.C. / Richmond
Year: 1999
Printings: 675,200
Printed: August 2000
Run: 2nd of 2 of partial split runs of 3 from BE03200001* - BE03840000*
Value:  $30.00 in CU

Hey Man..

I have a $20 bill with the following serial number:

ID 00022222 D

Will the repeating numbers make this bill worth anything more than face value?

Among certain collectors this is a binary note and it's about $35.00 in crisp-uncirculated.

Circulated is a general grading term meaning slightly folded or wrinkled not in crisp shape.
