    A week or so after putting together my $1 type set and posting it, I finally found my first ladder, so I'll be adding/changing it a little. This ladder is the 4 digit kind, but I still consider it a ladder. Please offer your opinions:

    I wouldn't call the serial number "2915 2914" a "ladder" — I'd call it "almost a repeater".

    I agree. It's really stretching it to call it a ladder. You see these kinds of things flogged on ebay. In my book, it's a spender. Sorry.

    OK, thanks for the feedback. Would you consider a two digit sequence a ladder? such as 23242526?

    Thanks in advance

    That's better, but one I would still pass on, being a purist.

    Now I'm going to agree with you.

    This is what I would call a ladder:

    OK. Thanks. I'll be a purist as well and continue to look only for 1 digit ladders. :)

    Look at what some folks on eBay call ladder notes.

    • "Broken Ladder Ending" — L48244123Q, L48244567Q, and L4824890Q because the last three or four characters of each note are 123 4567 890.
    • "Ladders" — H08858380B, H0885381B, H08855382B through H08858387B because they're sequential serial numbers.

    That is kind of crazy....I've seen stuff like that on ebay and wondered what they were smoking. I really thought that a ladder could be like the one I got. Thanks so much for your posts and helping me get up to speed....they were a lot more helpful than say, "whatever spins your propeller."

    Wasn't in a great mood when I posted that. Sorry. I should have tried to be more helpful. I'll try to be better next time.

    I wouldn't personally keep that bill, but I know folks who would... Looks pretty cool to me!
