This looks like a very similar example except it is a star note. I thought the fact that it was compiled of 3 digits made it very cool. The star look up site lists it a not very rare. Is this worth keeping?

For $20 bills only, Series of 2013 and earlier $20 star notes generally have added value in uncirculated condition according to the price guide, so all 2017 or 2017a $20 star notes whether circulated or uncirculated are essentially worth face value at this time. If it has a fancy serial number, error, or you just would like to collect star notes or like something about the bill then its of course up to you to keep, and as always there may be buyers who buy anyway for their personal collector or taste, but not based on actual worth such as to a dealer. Maybe keep the smaller bills like $1-5 star notes regardless if you like star notes, but normally not $20-$100 unless it had something of true value as that can add up quickly. Two digits (binary) are always worth keeping and can add value (0+1 is a true binary, but others are also desired).

I thank you both for the valuable information and education on star notes of all denominations. This will really help. I know they wouldn't be true binary, but wouldn't a note with only two digits of any kind be a binary note essentially?

Fun note, but a spender to me.

I'm guessing that's what you meant by "but others are desired." 2's and 4's or 5's and 8's could be called binary?

Yes, In a binary serial number, only two different numbers appear, 0-9. In a true binary serial number, those two numbers are zero and one. Both are worth keeping.

A fun find!

I do not believe I would hold on to it permanently, but I might keep it for spending at the next coin show.

It doesn't matter whether you collect postcards, or lunchboxes, or dolls or anything else, collect because you like it. Not for the return on your investment. If it happens to gain value over time, that's just the cherry on top.

Face value too high forces this Note to be a spender.
