    Hi everyone, so I just started getting into collecting paper currency and now have a small army of family and friends (not really, about 6 people) checking out their cash for interesting serial numbers, star notes, etc. My brother texted me this pic earlier of a bill he received.

    Its a trinary star note, I looked it up online earlier and the site said there were 640,000 printed and a 640,000 run size. It has some meter that puts it maybe a little past the halfway mark on a scale of how "rare" it is (pic attached). I'm not sure if this is a reputable site/search engine or not.

    Anyways, I was going to give him like $5 for the find to add it to my collection. Is this fair? Is this bill worth more, or less? If its more I don't want to rip off my brother, and will gladly kick him a few more bucks.

    I realize a lot if this is subjective and about what the buyer is willing to pay, but are there any good online references or books about how to determine value with regards to modern bills? I definitely have a lot to learn about this and any input is appreciated.

    Collecting circulating star notes can be fun. My brother handled a lot of cash, and sent me star notes he found at face value.

    Currency guide books can give you a ballpark price, but for current values and trends it’s best to check recent sold auction and Buy-it-Now prices on eBay and other auction sites.

    I don’t believe it being a trinary adds any value.

    my brothers kind of a jerk, he will let me look through his money, but sometimes he won't let me have it or I have to pay double of what coin or dollar it is :banghead:
