I work as a cashier here in Montana and its been fun seeing a lot of old coins come through (even got some silver certificates come through!). I always put my own money in the till to take whatever interesting comes through. I have been swapping out one dollar bills with any $1 star notes that come through. Is this worth doing? I dont want to waste all my cash if this is not worth it. I understand that the rarity/value depends on the size of the run and the serial numbers. All my star notes are 2009 and 2013, from moderately-common to common runs. Is it even worth pulling these guys out to save them?
Thanks for the help!

You have to evaluate them on an individual basis. That's all part of the hobby.

You have to kiss a lot of frogs to meet your prince.

condition is important too, a modern star note that is wrinkled, stained, and written upon is unlikely to be worth more than face value

Steve calls it - too many "ifs".

But Steve - no kissing, please!

Both true. Be careful of the "it's just a dollar" mentality. You can easily wind up with hundreds of dollars tied up in wrinkled cash when they're worth close to face and are being eroded by inflation. Sometimes you might get lucky and find a star with a low print run, you just have to (as Steve said) evaluate each one.

So true. About ten years ago I culled almost $400 face from my collection and bought two certified notes which have appreciated nicely since then.

Good move Mr. Frog. I'm considering busting out clad proof sets and just spending the coins.

And how about that box of 2006 silver proof sets, Mr bucks? That would definitely buy you a few nice notes.
