A long, long time ago in a land not far from here lived an uneducated collector. This collector had recieved a damaged Star note in general commerce, and thought to himself, maybe if I send this damaged Star note to the BEP, they will send me a BRAND NEW Star note in exchange.Well, if any of you out there have ever tried this you would know that the BEP does NOT send replacement currency. The BEP will send a Government CHECK for the amount of mutilated currency. This was not an acceptable alternative for the collector, so after many phone calls and emails it was decided that the BEP would return the damaged Star note to the collector. This cost the BEP $13.42 in postage, and coincedentally, was postmarked on 9/11 ! I am attaching a photo of the letter, envelope, and the 2003A Philadelphia Star note, which is ALMOST a radar Star note. ENJOY
BTW, if you haven't guessed by now....I am that collector.
