hello all. I just have a question. I collect all kinds of currency. however I came across a very cool 1 dollar note. its a 2009 serial number G77777770D thats alot of 7s. even the placement numbers around the note are 7s. anyone think this is something somebody would want?

This one would be "close but no cigar" to most U.S. collectors...I think moxking does bring up a really good point in regards to 7 being lucky in China.

The lucky number in China is 8 not 7. The US Treasury (BEP) has sold lucky money currency sets since 2000 for the Chinese new year with serial numbers ending in 8888 in red envelopes because 8 and red are considered lucky in Chinese culture.
Your note should have some premium but not like it would if it was all 7's
That is definitely a serial number people would want. As long as it's not in terrible condition you should be able to get a premium for it on a website like eBay. I'd say probably in the $10-$20 range (But you would get close to $1,000 for the complete solid 7's) Also as stated, Chinese culture loves the number 8, while 7 is lucky in American culture.
thanks everyone. I'm trying to upload a picture here to show you all but cannot get it to work. I am not very tech savy. its in decent shape not all worn out and rough looking. I just though it was neat amd wanted to show it off. a guy I know offered me 20 bucks for it but I passed
the things ive came across in the last week are amazing. I got a 1944 us 50 centavos coin. a Mercury dime a series 1934 funny back dollar bill and the one I posted about. all just found around my town as change
