I just received payment with this one hundred dollar bill which is from 1934. It seems to be old enough to be worth more than its face value. I've looked on google, but they all say they need to see the actual bill in order to determine its value. So, I come here to ask you guys what you think. Thanks for any help you can do.

I'll be honest with you upfront. Paper is not my specialty. $100.00 is alot of money. I personally couldn't afford to hang on to that bill. If it were in better shape....I would. The pencil mark and the ragged bottom of the bill I believe will prevent you from getting much over face value for that bill. But do wait for others to chime in.
FYI. The dates on paper money don't change every year like on coins. Yours is a "series of 1934A". They start out with a date, 1934. If they change a signature on the bottom of the bill, it becomes 1934A, then B etc. until they decide to change the date. There were 5 series dated 1934. 1934,1934A,1934B,1934C,1934D. The next series is dated 1950.
Yours was probably printed much closer to 1934 than 1950. There is probably information available somewhere as to what months and years each series was printed...I just don't have it in front of me at the present. Oh to the forum!

Welcome to CCF. In fine to extra fine condition it's worth $100-$140.
Your bill looks too worn to be worth more than face but you could take it to a coin shop near you and see if they will buy it from you at a premium. http://www.uscurrencyauctions.com/$100notes.htm

Okay, thanks for the information guys, but how can you tell if a bill/coin was circulated or not?

If a coin is circulated, it will be worn. If a note is circulated, it will be dirty, folded, torn, and wrinkled. That note is common enough that I doubt any dealer would want to buy it, not enough profit for them. You might be able to put it on eBay but you would make very little after eBay and PayPal fees(if you even turned a profit at all). The majority of the 1934A notes are quite common, I have had dealers at coin shows give me $5 and $10 1934A notes as change.

Good luck Pikachews, I picked up 7 of those from one of my banks a few months ago. Took them to two coin shows trying too sell them. No luck They were in great shape, no folds, no tears, nothing, they just looked like old money. I did keep one and managed to sell the rest after a while. Sold one to my auto repair man for $120.00 and a few waffled state quarters and blank planchets. The other 5 went to a pawn shop for $115-$120 each, price depending on whether it was an A,B,C etc, etc.
