Lol and rough but pretty still
$2 bills were considered bad luck and if you receive one, you were supposed to rip off a corner to remove the bad luck. If you got a $2 with all 4 corners missing, you needed to either burn the bill or rip it in half (I've heard both versions).
Just some useless info for the day
Thank you for the story of superstition.
There was only one red seal US $1 note.
It's the Series 1928 United States Note.
They were mostly released in Puerto Rico but not until 1948-49.
Mine is definitely not CU but it's acceptable.
Even in this grade the premium is pushing $100.
Well that's a nice premium
Do mine have a premium? Km assuming 2 dollars each
I've never heard this before. All I ever heard was elderly people with poor eyesight used to tear the corners on these bills so they could tell the difference between a two and a twenty dollar bill. I've seen numerous bills that have a corner or two blackened out for the same purpose.
The two that have all their corners might be worth $5 each.
The one with the torn corners is probably worth face to a collector.
That’s exactly right. They’re probably racetrack deuces. Hope they picked a winner.
I always wondered why the corners were missing on most of the 2 dollar bills I have
