    Hi friends at CT, I want to ask your opinion about this 10 dollar bill serial number. Is it worth than face value? Thank you all

    I cannot provide you a precise value for your note, but notes with a two-digit serial number less than 100 generally command a decent premium above face value. For example, here's a recently sold listing courtesy of eBay for an average circulated $10 Federal Reserve Note with a two-digit serial like yours.

    Edit: However, I should also note that any premium is totally dependent on how much somebody is willing to pay.

    Its double digits. I am sure that people will pay over face for a bill like that.

    Au contraire @SensibleSal66!

    A quick search of sold listings on eBay would beg to differ with your assessment.

    I think you can get a little extra for it from a collector of these.

    It’s most certainly worth more than face value but the overall condition of the bill matters a great deal. Serial numbers less than 100 are highly valued so you have a keeper.

    As stated above there is a premium. That premium is whatever someone will pay for it.

    Definitely a cool serial number and a keeper. Value? Whatever someone is willing to pay for it. People that collect low serial numbers would pay a premium, but I'm not sure how much over face. Because of the serial number, I'd certainly put it in a holder to preserve it. A full photo showing the condition might give some members a better idea of the value.

    From 1991 - 1995 I drove a cab in Illinois. At that time low serial numbers in nice condition I sold to coin dealers. Bills with five or six of the same number were bought in any condition by people who liked to cheat at liars poker. Standard
    rates were five times face for five numbers and ten times face for six numbers. Since then I have seen buy offers of $1500 for one dollar bills with eight numbers the same. I assume that is for crisp uncirculated but I never checked since I have never had one. Hope that helps.

    You would most likely got a better response, of value, if you showed the entire note. If it is creased, folded, or tore, it could be of face value only. Good luck

    Two digit!
    That's a keeper.

    In general, a low two digit serial number is a keeper, but it also depends on the overall condition of the note. Without a full front and back picture, it is hard to tell the condition of the note.

    For $10, I'd keep it, esp if born in '52 (like me!) or something. You just don't see/find all those consecutive "oughts" (eggs, bagels, etc.)
