    Need a little help from some of the pros on this one...

    I found another one of these Low-Print Star notes that says it was from a Print-Run of 250k Sheets

    Four years ago I had found a bunch of them from the same Run at a store about a hundred miles from here and looking back at my original post, the Star Note Looker-Upper site said it was from a 150k Run... so my questions are..

    What is the difference between 250K "sheets" and 150K Run"? It appears that my original notes from 4 years ago, no longer say 150k, they also say 250k Sheets.. why does that happen? Because of updated information??

    it seems that 250k Sheets is a little less rare 250-sheets.jpg 150k-.jpg 150k-rare.jpg than 150k Run

    Runs #1 & #2, designated as “Notes”, are distributed in full packs of replacement notes and are typically easier to find. Runs #3 & #4 designated as “Sheets” are inserted randomly when a defective sheet is discovered. “Sheet” run notes are usually harder to find compared to “Notes” run notes. The website you are using is usually accurate but I always reference uspapermoney.info first and then reference the BEP monthly production charts as well.

    I know many collectors, including myself, that have CU examples of run #3, but have yet to see any notes from run #4.

    Found this one today and couldn't decide if this should go in the "Almost" thread because it's almost a good 'un... but it's not in great shape and even has a slight tear near the bottom but even so, will keep it for the collection..

    Surely there is a name for this serial number.

    Found a star note! It's really beat up, but finding a star in the wild is an extremely rare event for me.

    I found a folded star note in circulation a while ago, but I never shared it here. These days I never have cash, literally never, so I don't see anything anymore. I don't remember when I found this one, but I sneaked it away.

    To add to the glorious occassion, it scored a very "less rare" rating on Star Note lookup.

    Perhaps I didn't need to sneak this one away.

    59AD165D-F265-489D-BC1D-5FCB6175438B.jpeg Found in circulation, and going back into circulation. Interestingly enough, I found another L-F block 1993 $20 in crisp condition, so I can let this one go.

    Blasty I love gooooold!

    I don't actively search straps, but I keep anything cool I find in circulation. Here are a few - not super special, but cool!

    As an engineer I find this one extremely cool, because its serial number is a perfect power of two (2^10). It is also the lowest number I've found.

    The 1963 star note came in change at a Dutch Bros. I've found a few 1963s in the past, but never a star. I suspect someone's collection may have been spent. Below that is a note that I saved for having all 5s and 6s but otherwise nothing special.

    At the bank. Ran into my first bill (US DOLLARS) collector. He was asking for federal reverse notes. What was he interested in?
