    Obtained this contemporary, but, fairly crisp 1996 $20.
    I might or might not hold onto it with the pink bank stamp remnant in the corner.
    Just a note: These bills are quite common, but, as they wear out, they are destroyed, and fewer and fewer of these circulate each year.
    Nice to see at least one of these among the green 2004-date 20s.

    What do you think fellow paper money collectors? Does the ink stamp ruin it?

    I think it is in good condition. The ink does drop condition. Overall, I like it.

    I don't think it ruins it
    . It does make it less desirable if given a chose between it and a cleaner one.
    Keep it until you find a better one. I have a one saved.I like the large portrait.

    I would consider it as a spender myself unless you need this as a place holder for your collection

    A couple weeks ago I got a crisp 1996 $20 but both of ours just look like spenders. Very high serials, no star, may have been folded in half at one point. Etc..

    The ink stamp on the bottom would really
    Be a negative from a value stand point

    I can't extract anything from the bill that's a wow factor. IMO it's a spender. But that's me. YMMV

    I started stashing away examples of the Big face plain notes (Generation you posted), I see them less often and they're usually beat to shit. So the nicer ones I just stash.

    I'd spend it due to it being newer along with the damage it has. That red line is a killer to me.

    I do the same- any crisp $5/$10/$20 1996-2001 banknotes that I come across hopefully won’t have to go back into circulation. However, I try to make room for the really nice small head notes.
    While the late 90s/early 00s notes are still allowed to circulate, the 1995 and before series are swiftly withdrawn.

    Their days are numbered as well, unfortunately. The government issued a notice within the last year that black and white fives and tens will no longer be reissued for circulation once redeemed. Surely black and white twenties and fifties are no longer reissued, either. Or if they are I can't imagine they will be for much longer.

    Tellers are increasingly setting them aside as more and more of the ignorant masses in society grow increasingly wary of the perfectly good yet increasingly older first generation redesign notes of the '90's.
