    My father in law passed away a few years back and after cleaning out the the house
    we found that he had a hoard of $2 bills over 2k ! i guess he thought that one day
    they would be worth something, that day has yet to come.

    The serial numbers are interesting @Allred, but not enough to command a premium over face value.

    Interesting link. It is about US currency. Do the same rules apply to currencies of other countries?

    Well, given that people in the USA are much more into these odd things I thought perhaps the residents of other countries did not get as excited about them.

    I like $2 bills. They're just different.
    I get them 100x new in the BEP strap so they feel and smell new.
    Then they are stored away and rarely see the light of day.

    i'm sure my kids will say the same thing. Except in my estate/will I even state they are just worth face value.

    Dont get me wrong, the coolness factor is off the hook, just the value isnt there unless you drop back to the Red Seals :)

    I pay $2 each for them. ($200 per 100x bundle)
    and they are worth $2 ($200 per bundle unless ppl pay more for sequential serial number of which all 100 are sequential).
    so ... I'm not losing anything.

    What about losses over time due to inflation? This is the reason I don't like to keep paper.

    To make it brief. I don't allow macroeconomic policy to dictate my spending / savings habits. I base my financial decisions on my goals, not the gov't goals for consumers. Will inflation/deflation ever stop?

    To me, cash is still king and used all the time. Half of my purchases are cash base at some point. It saves me money. There is also no premium paid at any time by having or using cash. And no matter the economic condition, conversion issues of PMs, etc you always know how much your cash is worth; and it's instantly usable even when there's a massive blackout when electronic methods are not available.

    That doesn't mean I don't have other investments: PMs; coins, high yield savings, stocks, mutual funds, retirement accounts, property, etc. I just also hold cash as it's instantly available and pretty cool to look at.

    Do you track each individual item in CPI and inflation statistics? Or just lump them all together? Do you buy large CPI items each and every month or just use the number to gauge your sentiment to it?

    Think of how your mortgage, car purchase, salary, energy, gasoline is affected not just *now* but also long term in relation to inflation, interest rates; competition or improved methods of production.

    What about negative inflation such as in early 2015. Did you sell all your assets and convert to cash ?

    I base my decisions on my spending and long term goals and cash will continue to be a major player in that. But then, I also keep all my change and hoard it too. LOL

    Of course, one's definition may make everything totally different from my perspective.

    I have a large collection of paper money as well, but in the back of my head I keep repeating to myself the fact that a dollar today will be worth more than a dollar in 2038.

    The face still will say $1.

    It's that just when everyone's crypto money is stolen by martian aliens, us paper holders will be the only one's able to buy anything.

    I briefly thought of buying back into crypto after each theft, and then getting out after a bounce back. But I don't want to literally lose the money at any point by hackers. http://money.cnn.com/2018/06/11/investing/coinrail-hack-bitcoin-exchange/index.html

    We get power blackouts here often. I still go to the local Meijer / Walmart and buy anything I want even with all the electronics down. They'll have to backup power all areas of the internet around here to prevent non-electronic money days.
