I'm sure that I'm not the only one here who checks the serial numbers of any bank notes they may get for radars etc. I've been doing this for a while now and so as a result I have a small collection of 4 digit radar notes. I've recently decided to thin the herd a bit. I've decided to keep older notes and 3 digits and better, but the question is , is it worth while keeping 4 digit radars or should I just release them back into circulation?

Rest in Peace

Give example like 1221XXXXX or 12XXXX21 either of which ain't worth squat. If 7 of 8 digits don't count...

Kinda like me saving the ugly Susan B. Anthony dollars, just because they were...? Still spent like a dollar...

I see what you mean, I was thinking USD #'s. Because of only 7 digit I'd consider those a true radar, don't they sell on eBay like that? Have no idea what a market would be for. 'em.

No idea either. There are staggering numbers of these things out there however you define it, by series or block, circ or unc. They're a waste of time to me.

What condition are they in? If they're UNC ... you can sell them and get about a 15% premium As those look to me like newer prefixes.

If they're not UNC's I'd say you're either going to have to sit on those awhile or just keep in your own collection until you get a good UNC example..

With anything newer than the '80's bird series I only keep a note if it has some type of interesting serial number or its a replacement

these are out of circulation so not top grade. That does answer my question though , back into circulation they go.

I sold some to B&W coins with around a 10-20% markup over face value. But with that being said, I noticed in another recent thread that they closed the brick and mortar shop.
