Good explanation, Steve.

Nice $20 star, cashhound - how about a pic of the reverse?

I still need the $20 note. I like yours!


My 1914 $20 is a bit of a problem note. I got it because I wanted a San Francisco note, which are less common and I didn't have any other large size SF notes. Like anything else in this hobby, there's a trade-off. Either pay more, or settle for less.

Good question. It's a replacement (Star) note. Typically, less than .5% of all notes printed are replacement notes. They are used to replace defective and/or damaged notes. This particular note is the Key Note for the series and typically distributed in pairs, which makes them difficult to find especially in uncirculated condition...unlike some replacement notes that are distributed in packs of 100. A print run of 160K is very low compared to the billions of 2017 $20 FRNs printed and distributed.

From my first penny album in the 70s to today, when I'm mostly collecting banknotes, I've never once bothered to procure a star note or even pull one out of circulation. Your posts have convinced me, and today I pulled this lovely note out of my wallet and put it in a sleeve in my album. Yup. Only 3.2 million of these babies and it's all mine.



I can't see myself going out and buying these, but I will be pulling them out of circulation from now on when I see an AU note. It would be cool to replace some of the modern face-value notes in my album with star notes if I come across them.

Not sure if I should thank you or curse you for adding yet another thing to my list of stuff to collect.

All the notes I get in change and from the bank, I usually do check them for star notes and weird serial numbers and then I think to myself... "I'm not going to collect these" and I spend them. I just don't see it, but like many times stated, people will collect anything. I will state if I get a serial number lower than 12 I am keeping that one

But I'm the same way with coins, modern coins just don't do it for me. I do have a current $1, $5, $10 and $20 but thats just so that I have a type set of each note.

@whatdowehavehere What do you look for to authenticate these? I like the idea of having something like this in my collection, but seems like a non-expert could get tricked by a fake pretty easily.

captaincoffee: sold my first coin for a profit in 1972; was a Founder of C4, etc. I've been around the block a few times... these may be traced back to Lt. Griswald (great Estate!). You can see one a bit later in the serial-number scheme at Heritage 7-15-2005/38073: 33027 graded 65. These are the only three notes of this issue in Mint State, Uncanceled and Unregistered!
