    Hello and welcome to CT.

    Those are a common bill and yours has been around the block a few times. Condition is everything and that one is worth face value with all the folds, creases, and non significant serial #.

    That's a bill I would leave as a tip and watch the server get a funny look on their face.

    Are you nuts? Spend it at a Mickey D's and hope they call the cops on you for attempting to pass counterfeit currency.

    This actually happened twice, once in Maryland and once in Texas several years ago, and the suspects were arrested, but when the authorities were informed that it was real US currency, they were sued, BIG TIME!

    Unlike coins, the date on the bill is most likely not the actual date. And they will continue printing bills with that date if there is no design change. IDK when they stopped printing this bill, but if was in the 1960's I would not be surprised.
    $3 value.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    As others have said, it really doesn't have much value above face. But it if you like it, definitely keep it. You only have $2 tied up in it.

    Thanks everyone, one of my Mom’s friends who is 83 and got this bill in her 20’s wanted to know if it was worth anything.
