    I’m trying to ‘correctly identify’ and label this serial number but am not having any success. Perhaps, a “triple consecutive bookend” Seriously though, is there a separate classification for this sort of ‘fancy serial number’?

    On a side note: I am not really a fan of collecting paper money and I certainly am not the type who believes every odd serial number will net hundreds of dollars on Ebay. And yes, I am aware of the condition of the bill.

    *I also understand that the ‘coolness index/factor’ is meaningless; nonetheless, a score of 99.08% tells me that there’s SOMETHING unique to this bill… right?

    The 1st part is correct (coolness factor is meaningless). What you make of it, is up to you. If:
    -If you're not a fan of collecting paper money then you should probably spend it. If I had some circulated notes with repeaters or radars I would not trade that note b/c it doesn't impress me. I wouldn't give you FV for it. I hope that doesn't sound too harsh but 99% of "broken ladders" & so-called fancy # on SM are not a big deal.

    I have seen some of the Reddit channels where users pump up everything (& recommend grading/selling regular stuff). Its nice that there's these passionate fans of currency but the downside is that there's misinformation & recommendations that I would never condone. So many of these opinionated individuals have never sold online & have never sucked up the sellers' fees. I think the worst of them are the ones who claim a poorly centred note "is a miss-cut error" (or something like that). Its always good to turn to the forums to get a bit of a different perspective.

    I don’t quite understand this point here. Would you please elaborate? As to your closing paragraph… spot-on!!!

    More a Liar's Poker bill than a true collectible.

    An interesting number but in reality, it’s nothing worth collecting. The magic marker on the top of the bill is damage so if you can afford to keep $20 than tuck it away. If not, spend it.

    I apologize if this doesn’t come out the way that so intend for it to — that is, without sarcasm or ingratitude (as I truly appreciate all of your comments) — but I was only interested in discovering if there was a certain name/specific way of describing this serial number pattern. I really have no interest in selling it, nor do I believe I’d get more than $1 over face value if in fact I did.

    - I just meant that the note wouldn't interest me (I can't see it as collectible). Others might but the circulated condition would probably eliminate several. I have kept a few circulated repeaters & radars in the past, but usually end up spending them. Nobody wants circulated examples. They'd have to be 2 digit, lots of zeros, or really tough to be saved &/or put into a sleeve. Special serial numbers should be in AU or better IMO.

    I don't know a name for either serial number except, perhaps "fancy." I find it troublesome that I have seen collectors post comments like 'such & such serial number' is a "broken ladder." I have seen this term on SM but was hoping collectors wouldn't pick it up (but they have). Still don't know anyone who collects them (personally) but obviously there must be a few who do.
