Thanks for the reply. I'm not really sure which is horseshoes mean but I'll loook into that. So binaries and repeaters isn't worth collecting ??
I think the last 4 digits have to be either 19XX or 20XX to be considered "birthday" note.
Agree with other CT members' reply. Have to be binary, repeaters or ladders to be considered good (or fun) to collect. Just like this one in my collection:
This one is a "repeater" :01870187
You could keep it, but remember, Condition is very important with any collectable.
That's why people use the expression of "It's not horseshoes" to say " You're close but not quite there".
There's another old expression that says " Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. ".
What we are saying is that most of your examples are close to what you think they are, but not quite there.
Except for the ones I pointed out : you have two binaries and one repeater.
The 06699699 is what is known as a Flipper Serial Number
If you flip the note upside down you can still read it as a serial number!
The better the condition, the higher the possible value.
I missed that one!
Coin Talk !! Please don't get discouraged. Just keep looking and searching, and posting. The more you look , the more you'll find.
So far, you've got 4 good "Fancy Serial Numbers". That's great !!
