A friend at work inherited this and would like some information(condition, value) plus any other background one can provide. I didn't want to handle it much so these are the best pics I can do. Thanks in advance.

Definitely worth less than $50 in this condition, and I think you would have a problem finding a buyer at any price.

It's pretty cool but poor condition. I think frog maybe generous with $50. I would expect $20-$30, it's still a cool bill.

This note, even with 3 corners missing still has some numismatic value. I would think the real value is in the family connection and I'd recommend getting it into a currency sleeve and document the provenance. Some $2 notes have corners missing because back in the day, 2$ notes were considered unlucky and people thought that tearing a corner off would eliminate the bad luck.

Definitely cool, but those corners really hurt it.

Definitely good but agree about the corners.
