Here Are Some Common Questions About Serial Numbers:

Q. Are “fancy” serial numbers worth anything?
A. It depends on the condition and how “fancy” the number is.

Think about “fancy” number in this way.

1) a fancy serial number needs to jump off the bill in such a way that someone says “WOW” That’s Cool!”
– Examples: 88888888 or 12345678, 11223344, 10000001 or 44445555 etc.
– A WOW factor so grand, that a person would be willing to pay a premium and want to put in a frame and hang it on a wall.

2) it’s gotta be in damn-near perfect condition

Watch this short clip to see how to determine how much if any value yours may have.


Q. The serial numbers on the front seem higher than usual
A. Generally insignificant. Look on eBay for others like it.

Q. One of the numbers are off a little bit?
A. This is called a stuck digit. Rather insignificant, but can sell for few bucks on eBay.

Q. One of the numbers are really bold?
A. Not extreme enough to add much if any value. Try eBay.

Q. I have a number of bills in sequential order?
A. Not a big deal, spend it. Unless, they all have the same sequential errors on them or maybe you have at least one that has a “fancy” serial number like: 88888888 or 12345678 etc, then, it would be only that one that could be worth more than face value. Just that one though, you could spend the rest of those in the sequence.

We Get a Lot of Inquiries on This One:

Q. My bill doesn’t look right, it’s misaligned?
Q. Want to know value of misaligned dollar bill?
Q. Oblong looking print on left upper corner?
Q. I have a misprinted bill?
Q. There’s a dark line down the middle?
Q. I have a one dollar bill where the corner was folded when printed?
Q. Part of the seal is printed on the back?
Q. Front of the bill shifted to the left?
Q. One dollar bill with multiple errors?
Q. I think I have an ink transfer error?

A. Unfortunately, there is no set price or value for these kinds of things.

Some value driving factors Include:
1) how extreme the error is
2) if its on front or back
3) condition of the bill
4) demand and desirability

Think about it this way, the only reason error notes have any value to begin with, is because it’s unique, different and has a “wow” factor to it.

A wow factor so grand, that a person is willing to pay a premium to own it. The more extreme it is, and the better the condition it’s in, the more someone would be willing to pay, to own it.

But how much will someone pay?
Do some research on eBay. (this is how from mobile or from a desktop).

But don’t be misled by what people are “asking” for theirs. Because people can “ask” anything they want, it doesn’t mean it’s worth that much or even desirable for that matter. You have to find recent sales of a like item to substantiate value and demand.

Watch this short clip to better understand this.

A. Generally speaking, no. If your bill should be an older collectible, have an extreme error, or a very low serial number, or fancy serial number; these can aleady have substantial values in high grades. Should any the above also have star next to the serial number… This can double or even tripple the value of an already expensive piece.

Q. How much are silver dollars worth?
A. That depends on if they are indeed a silver dollar. A lot of people see a large dollar coin and mistake it for a “silver dollar”.

If they are from the mid 1800’s to 1935, these are silver dollars and values are determined by there condition, mint-mark and rarity.

If they are from the 1970’s and you see copper on the edge of the coin (the rim), these are NOT a “silver” dollar. It is a dollar coin and worth face value.

There were however “silver” dollars in this same time period that were made and marketed to collectors by the US Mint.

Those in a brown box with a hard plastic holder (know as Brown Ikes) are proof coins (shinny mirror like background) and were minted 1970 to 1974 and are 40% silver.

They were also made available in blue envelopes known as Uncirculated. These are very common and retail for about $8 to $15 ea. depending on year, style and condition.

In 1976, the mint made the 1976-s Bicentennial Silver Proof Set containing a 40% “silver dollar”, a 40% silver quarter and a 40% silver dime. The mint also made these as the Uncirculated Silver 1976 US Mint Sets, in a red envelope with the same three silver coins.

These coins are worth more in there original packaging, and only silver value if not.

Q. I have a dime and a quarter from 1964?
A. Coinage 1964 and older (dimes, quarters and half dollars) are 90% silver, nothing of collectible value but do contain silver. Value for these coins are determined by the price of silver that day.

Example, at the time of this writing, the spot price of silver is $23.27 per ounce. This makes the silver value of $1 in coins (10 dimes, 4 quarters, 2 halves or mix thereof) equal to, roughly $16. 60 for each dollar in face value of coins you have.

If all you have is a dime from 1964, the value is: $16.60 / 10 = $1.60. A dealer will pay you a little less and sell it for a little more.

Nothing collectible unless mid 1930’s and loder. And then, value is determined by  the condition, mint-mark and rarity. Have some to sell? Contact us
