1988 $1 Bill, B-H

Have a 1988 note and want to know its value?

This is a block changeover note, well part of the newly reduced printing level. Before late 1989 most dollars notes were printed to a maximum of 99,200,000 but that was reduced to 96,000,000. I think it was to sell high numbered uncut sheet to collectors but I am not sure.



This note was one of the first to have its printings reduced. Now 96 million blocks are normal. For that reason the note with 96000000 as a serial number would be worth more possible even 100 times more to certain collectors.

So if you find a modern post 1988 note with a number higher than 96000000 it may indicate it was once in an uncut sheet. 

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Federal Bank: $1 Note - D.C.  / New York
Year: 1988
Printings: 921,400,000
Printed: January 1990
Run: 6th of 15 run from B32000001H  - B38400000H 
Value:  $1.00 in VF

Do you have a $1 note 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.

I received a Series 1977 dollar bill on Sunday and upon receiving it noticed a difference in size. Looking at the front side of the bill, I see that the top and right look as though someone took scissors and cut straight along the edges. They have a lot less space than the left and bottom sides of the bill. I would send a picture but I don't know how to do so in a comment. Is this bill worth keeping? Or maybe even worth a bit of money (more than a dollar)? It would be very much appreciated if you could get back to me at some point. Thank you in advance!

If the physical size of the bill is the same as the other than this is a Minor Faulty Alignment error with no extra value.

If the bill is actually larger than a normal 1 dollar than I would need the full serial number to determine if it is a true error.

The bill is actually smaller than normal. The serial number is: E87919003C

This is a Cutting Error unfortunately it is a common one that does not bring any value since it can be made after the bill left the printing facility.

So no extra value.
