I've acquired at some stage this 1976 US $2 bill which seems to have gone through the post. It is franked '30 June 1978 Baltimore MD - First Day of Issue'. I know some people franked these bills on the actual first day of issue, but that was April 13, 1976.

A 15c US stamp was issued on 6-30-78 showing Fort McHenry, and I'm wondering if one of these was previously attached to the bill, but has since fallen off.

The bill is not printed off-centre as shown - I cropped the image a bit too much after scanning it!

Is this bill worth keeping or should I spend it on my next trip to the USA?

I tend to keep most small denomination notes I like. Whether it be for history or a story or sentimental reasons or anything interesting.

It's probably some sort of sickness....

Keep if you like it. Check eBay sold values for an idea of current values,I do not think they sell for much.

Worth doing the research on, I think!

I'd keep it. While probably not worth much it's a good conversation piece.
