Ooh, that's neat!
Just a busy college student working on a $1 block set from circulation.
(I'm supposed to be studying)

$70 worth of two dollar bills netted me three of these, one of which is my first ever Series 1928 $2 note.

I'm a bit bummed that all three of them have a tear on the corner. One of the men at my coin shop told me that many people who were horsebetting would tear off the corners of twos. What a horrible thing to do. If only these people knew that these bills would be worth something to a collector....

hey TheDanMan people rip the corners off of two dollar bills because it brings good luck or so they say. the story goes when you get a two dollar bill you should rip off one corner and if you get a two dollar bill with no corners you are to rip it in half.

Does anyone else have a thing that looks like a checkbook, but instead there are one dollar bills?

Make your own.
  • Cut a piece of codbod to bill size, taper the sides.
  • Square it up with a stack of crisp bills.
  • Clamp together.
  • Rubber cement the long edge overnight.


I did this with $2 bills when they first released them in 1976.

I work at a gas station, the other day had this guy come in and say "I need $10 on pump [whatever, I quickly forgot the number for understandable reasons!]." Handed me a small stack of bills. I barely glanced at the first one; it was going-on-brown and my first thought was "great, somebody's construction-project money." Then, as my coworker (on whose register I was working) came back, I glanced down and went "Hey, I want this!" and lifted it off the stack . . . also the one beneath it . . . and the one below that . . . . and as my jaw hit my chest I turned to my coworker (who's also a collector), spread a perfect fan of ten $1 silver certificates in front of her, and said "I'll split them with you."

We're now both the proud owners of four 1957 B and one 1935 F series certificates each. They're not in the most fabulous-ever condition (as you'd expect, being paper money in circulation), but they have NO tears, relatively even wear, no heavy folds (think of bills you get that seem ready to tear at any moment from how often they've been folded) . . . I've seen 2003 reserve notes that look worse!


. . . . I, um, may also have called the police to make sure we didn't get a collection that somebody'd applied a five-fingered discount to, because they kind of look like they've belonged to somebody for awhile. No word back yet, but now I'm in the 30-day waiting period before "finders keepers" applies.

I found these today at Bank Of America. I don't think I'm going to keep the 50, but I want to keep the 20, until I find one in better shape. Is there a premium on that 20?

If someone brought me that $20 in mint, I'd tell them to spend it.

If it is from 1950, that's ridiculous to suggest.

People on eBay, and on top of that, some folks like the old bills that say "Will Pay To The Bearer On Demand" since it's an obsolete message.
