I was looking at this dollar bill and wanted to know if it's a good deal or what offer should I make. I bought one before and spent to much, so I don't want to repeat the same mistake

Very common note. I would not pay over $75 for it. Uncirculated examples can be had for a couple hundred.

I agree with Wheat.

Very common note in all grades. Be patient and find a note with bright, original paper and vivid red serial numbers and seal. If you're going to own one example, find one you're proud to own and post.

Here's a purdy one if you can catch the winning bid.

I agree that the note is common. Still, a nice unc might run $300. This one, bright white with creases and less vivid colors, is a decent example IMO. No harm making an offer if you like it. I might go as high as $90-95. There doesn't appear to be any damage. Seller offers a generous return. That would give you time to check the bill carefully, looking for pinholes or signs of repaired tears, etc.

I did find one I'll interested in a little bit more. It's in good condition and is rarer. It's a Elliott/Burke. What should I offer for it?

Yes, the E/B sig combo is a tad scarcer, but both notes are sort of low VF. If you can find a bright certified one like babysitr's for similar money, I'd be tempted to wait. Do a "save search" on eBay and watch new listings every day.

Thanks for the advance, Coinfrog. When it comes to coin collecting I've better resource to find values. Currency is hard to find the values and grade the condition for me to figure out

If I understand you, that's all the more reason to wait for a nice certified note. Remember, this is (collectively) the second most common large size note series, with almost 1 BILLION printed. Take your time.
