Idk if it's worth more, coins and Canada has it as a minor premium, I got a 2$ bill in decent shape 1986 AUK prefix. Worth saving? I'll post pics in the grading forum a little later

As already mentioned, images are needed to assist you in a meaningful way.

As far as your initial question goes...

- For a note to be uncirculated, it can not have any folds - either across the bill or at the corners. The centering of the printed design also impacts the grade. Better-centered notes will grade higher than poorly-centered notes (all other things being equal).

- If the bill has even one fold it can be graded no higher than AU. The more folds, and/or the heavier the folds, the lower the grade.

- The amount of circulation wear and soiling also impact a bill's grade - the more of these, the lower the grade.

Images of your bill should provide folks with what they need to give you a better sense.

BTW: The "Coins and Canada" web site has a reasonable discussion of how to grade bank notes. Find it here: https://www.coinsandcanada.com/bank...grading.php.

Post a picture in the Canadian Banknote section of the forum and someone will help you.
AUK prefix doesn't help much we also need to know the signature.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

- from p. 371 of the 31st Ed. of Charlton CGPM:
ANOMALIES OF THE BIRDS OF CANADA ISSUE
"The Thiessen-Crow signature combination was intended to begin with $2 note AUK 1640000. However, notes with the Theissen-Crow signatures have been discovered in series AUG to AUN. Those of series AUJ are very scarce, while series AUG and AUH are extremely rare with Thiessen-Crow signatures."

-So there must have been a communication mix up in terms of which notes to use (& they had a surplus of Crow-Bouey already printed with they kept using with the new SN prefixes).

Your note looks to be VF & should be probably worth about $6-$7 (which is great for that condition!) It's collectible & you should put it in a currency sleeve.

BTW: if you'd like to see a short general video on grading, take a peak at the video on grading (below this reply). I've posted this on my Notaphylic Culture site:

That's a very long read lol, I stopped where building a relationship with bank tellers can be very beneficial for coin and bill hunting. I got lucky with hitting it off right away with the tellers at my bank:)

Based on the grade of vf and auk prefix it would be worth a few dollars more. And I don't have any other special prefix 2$ bills so I'll keep it.

Or what would you say the grade of this bill is? The other 2$ bills I have would probably be AU but with the prefix they have they are just worth 2$
