Finding an older series note (1963A) in circulation is remarkable. Someone squirreled the note away and then set it free at a later date. The lifespan of a one dollar bill was 18 months back in the 90's and has grown to 70 months now.

Stever - To what do you attribute this remarkable increase in lifespan over such a short period?

I believe it's because of two reasons.
First, I believe we use the $1 less often now. Purchasing power requires the $5, $10, or $20 more often now than the $1.
Second, the BEP destroys less currency than it did in the 90's, as shown in this chart.

Got this $5 star note when I cashed in a lottery ticket. Cool backstory to this star note.

Whenever I go to the grocery store before I leave I always go over the the lottery ticket kiosk where they keep a small trash can so people can throw away their non winning tickets. Well the Hoosier Lottery has several 2nd chance drawings on some of the tickets so I pull all the tickets and take them home and enter the ones that are eligible and recycle the ones that are not.

Well, when I went to enter this one in, it said "Congratulations, you won $5" Gotta love people who don't know how to play scratch offs! Ironically, this is the 2nd winner I pulled out of the trash in a month. The other was a $20 winner! Nothing like FREE MONEY!

Is it gross to pull trash out, yeah, however, I don't care who you are or your wealth status, ANYONE, would pull a lottery ticket out of the trash if they knew there was a winner in there.

Awesome Bryan.

This is the first I've heard about any 2nd chance lottery drawings.

@Bryan78, That is a great story and probably the most unique way I've ever heard of obtaining a star note

Here in California all of the non winning scratchers are eligible for second chance drawing. Over the years I have entered over 20,000 second cance tickets that I have picked up or have been given and have yet to win anything! I gave up entering them in March of this year.

Just thought I'd share this
My goal in life is to live forever, so far so good!

If you don't want to regret your past, don't screw up in the future because the future, inevitably, becomes the past!

If you live in Florida (as your name suggest),the Florida lottery might have some as well. I remember a few years ago entering a bunch in for a second chance drawing down there when I was vacationing.

I won one time on one. I hit a $1000 out at the local casino on New Years Eve and two days later I got a call and email from the Hoosier Lottery saying I hit for $777. I was one of five people in the state to hit on that drawing.

Needless to say, the month of January was a very good month for me because I also got a bonus and perfect attendance award money from work. I wish every month was like that!
