    I have 6 $2 bills. Want to know if any are worth anything and the overall value of them all together. I 1 bill with cereal number 56598918 & another ends in 19,so it was made right after. does that add any value? I don't know about the others, but one is number 00288230 E star note. slight rip on left side, but is it still worth anything. Any Advice helps!

    IMO, $24 a dozen.

    Unfortunately, the condition of the star note is such that it would sell for little (if any amount) above face. So.... as Rick stated, twenty-four bucks a dozen, or in the OP's case, six for $12. In other words, they're spenders.

    I have 8 or 10 $2 bills in near perfect condition (including some Series 1976) for my permanent collection and several circulated specimens that I carry in my wallet for emergencies and for special occasions such as tipping.
  7. Worth $ 24.00 as I type this, but you better spend the quick befoure the value of the dollar goes down again,

    Has basic math changed? I know it was a long, long time ago, but when I was in high school, I was taught that six two dollar bills added up to twelve dollars.

    Are any of these going over face value on any of the online auctions?

    no for the most part they are not because they just aren't worth anymore unless they are unused bills !!

    Unused $2 bills aren't worth any more than two dollars, either, unless there's something else notable about them. I have right now (almost) a strap's worth of crisp uncirculated 2009-series $2s in my home cash drawer. From there they're only going to my wallet, a few at a time. To spend. Like the money they are.

    I guess it is just up to the collector. I personally like any unusual denomination of currency (i.e. $2 bills, 2 and 3 cent pieces, ect.) even if they aren't worth much. I have a huge collection of $2 bills in all conditions just because I like them. If I see one I grab it, especially if it is a star note.

    Me too. I recently purchased a 2 cent piece and a 3 cent piece. I also bought a half dime. I buy $2 bills when one comes through at work. If theey're in nearly new condition I save them but if they are circulated I keep them in my wallet for use as tips, etc. They are a great conversation starter and an icebreaker.
  17. You say you "buy" them at work, how much do you pay for them ?.

    Face value.
  19. Then I guess you really don't "buy" them, you just switch them for ones. Do you know that you can go to most any Bank and get all the 2's you want, and also at face value.

    I can understand the saving of 2 and 3 cent pieces. They are anywhere between 125 - 150 years old. Current $2 star notes, I would save one or two just to have, then spend the rest. But for $2 bills in general? Your on your own there. One thing I would do when you can afford it, I'd buy a full sheet of $2 from the BEP. They always make for interesting conversation when seen by non- collectors. If you have a goodly amount of those $2 bills you mentioned, just sitting around, I would use them to make that purchase. It's more of a trade that way. Just a thought.

    Agree with Sam on this one. Lots of CU '76 $2 FRNs floating around. Because it was such a widely hoarded note, they don't carry a premium unless you've got a star. Uncut sheets are a different story.
