In England banknotes are changed quite frequently and old designs are withdrawn about a year after new ones are introduced (although you can still exchange them at the Bank of England). The oldest English notes still in circulation are 20 notes with Andrew Bailey's signature and an AA prefix, which date from 2007...

I once got a 1950 $20 bill when changing some currency, probably before my first trip to Boston in 1991, but it wasn't in great shape and I couldn't afford to put $20 aside in those days, so I just spent it.

I had a 1977 $1 bill among my tips last year when I took some US cruise passengers on a tour bus excursion. I spent it in Houston, TX in February during my short layover on my way back from my Australian holiday.

I went to a bank in Orlando, FL on my last real vacation to the USA in 2014 and changed $20 into $2 bills: the oldest ones were dated 1976. I've also had a 1976 $2 bill as a tip when guiding.

At my age I've come across many early notes, of course (gold certificates were still circulating when I was a kid), but had no interest in keeping them until I got involved in paper money collecting in the early '90s. Since then, this is the only cool note I've found in circulation in all those years -

Yep. I was dumbfounded too when he showed me. To each their own... I guess?

Probably my oldest, picked from a local gas station I frequent.


I really like the old car on the reverse, too bad they don't do that anymore.

Remarkable that notes printed before WW II are still floating around!

I forgot to say that my 1928-B series 5$ note was also redeemable in Gold. I would like to get the gold in 5 one $ gold pieces. or face in silver or other coins of the era.

. I think one of the cool things about living in the US is that there's such a huge quantity of notes circulating out there -that it is possible to find the odd very old series like the ones "garys64wildcat" listed.

Great topic/question btw.

Finding old notes "in the wild" was what pulled me into this hobby (also the fact that my brother got all my grandparent's coins!). As a teen, working at a car wash in the late Seventies, there would still appear the odd 1954 series. They mostly looked like the one attached below. I had heard about a "Devil's Face" in the original series but never found one (actually printed in 1954) but noticed asterisks printed in front of the serial numbers of our 1969-1975 multicolored series (and started to put those aside too).
