Hello, I'm pretty new, when it comes to collecting Paper Money & Banknotes. I came across these $100 star notes in some money I received. And was wondering if just having a star makes them more sought after or valuable? The serial numbers don't seem to be anything special. There in really rough shape, and have writing and stamping on them....Figures...But they're still my first * finds. The other $100 on its side doesn't have a star, I just thought it was in pretty good shape, being found in circulation. Its weird cause the bills crisp and stiff, but it feels almost like it was crumbled up a hundred times then ironed out with some starch. lol It amazes me how quickly I've adjusted to the new bills, I now come to really appreciate the older bills.
I thank you for reading all this, any and all help will be well appreciated. Thanks again.
Star notes are sought after by collectors. Sorry to say your notes most likely have no collector interest because of low condition. The writing on a note most of the time makes it non collectible. Condition is very important. Here is a link on star notes if you want to read up on them http://mycurrencycollection.com/ref...s/lookup.php John1

That's an awesome site! It turns out 1 of the bills came up red. DB00202971* Series 2003, Of course its the one in worst shape but still cool to find. I never knew that site existed. Thank You so much! Do you know of a site that looks up regular serial numbers, or without the star. I'm always looking at the serial numbers and wondering if its sought after.
Heres a what it says, thank god it has color cordination now I've got to do some research on what it all stands for. lol If only it was in better shape.
