    I have a 1977 hundred dollar bill that looks just like this in my drawer at work ( I work at a bank :p)

    and was wondering if it is worth buying from my drawer?
    The one in the picture is just a little bit nicer than the one i have. the one i have has no folds or creases.

    Is it worth buying from my drawer and re selling?

    I think the series is 1969 with the signature's of Elston and Kennedy issued by the Kansas City Bank. A MS63 would have a book value at about twice face. However, it is very difficult to sell for full book price. Maybe $175 would be more realistic. I would pick it up if you can. It will only go up in price over time.

    The 1977 $100 has a book value of $175 in Unc-63. Assuming yours is between XF and AU, you might get about $125 realistically. Buyers of 100s tend to go for the highest grades, especially among newer notes. So if it's anything less than high XF, it likely won't fetch much over face value.

    Keep in mind that New York printed the most 1977s, at 166,400,000 notes. That's more than 4 times more than the next highest issuing bank. Atlanta released the fewest - 3,840,000. Although book value shows the same price ($175) for all banks, supply would indicate that the New York note would fetch the least.
