Hi, so I think the Red ink one has some value, thoughts? Feedback? Also the 1976 $2 Bill series, I am in love with this bill but is it worth more then $2?

Also my scanning skills are so new, weird angles and strange edges are more me then the bill. Thanks!

Please confirm the Series date on the red seal - difficult to read from this scan.

Not really. These are extremely common unless in crisp uncirculated grade, and even then need to be virtually perfectly centered.

Yea Jimbucks nothing I have seems to be in crisp, decent condition - I'm realizing from this post they are more novelty then any value other then face. But honestly that is actually what I needed to know and why I asked.

Duh - should have just looked at the sigs. Anyway, agree - both of these are just spenders, unfortunately.

I buy red seals at 2x face, so assume something like that.

Do you really think that 1963 Red is a spender?

It would not be a spender for me unless I was hungry.

To me, the 1963 $2 United States Note would make an excellent gift to a young numismatic showing interest in collecting paper money. The hobby needs ambassadors and mentors to cultivate new collectors. There's probably many youngsters that have never seen a Silver Certificate, United States Note and many small portrait notes.

That says it well. I was just thinking that because the re-sale potential was virtually nil, they might as well be spent. But Steve's idea is an excellent one.

So these came to me as a gift from a family member, I had forgotten I even had them. When she passed I thought to myself "oh hey, there is that envelope, I wonder what is in it"

If I had found something profoundly valuable I probably would sell but mostly they are just fun bills to have. I'll keep them for the time being. My personal addiction is coins, maybe at some point I'll sell these to a new numismatic collector at face value to start their own addiction. :)

I applaud your thoughtful outlook ericalynn13! Those bills really look very nice -- crisp and clean maybe just a couple of hairline scratches. I would keep them in a protective sleeve if they were mine.

I had similar notes as well as some $1 Barr notes. I found if you collect these types, at some point they come in handy for trading. I have a local coin shop that takes these in trade for other dates I needed to fill my collection. Both bills and coins. It is a shame to just spend these.

On that same note I have way too many start notes and I just can't spend them as if they are just another note. I also use them to trade.

Great point.

Also freebies to potential YNs to get them interested, or stocking stuffers.
