    With any note, condition is everything though great finds
    the condition on these especially with the 1934C would be
    In the Fine to VF range, with out seeing any possible problems
    On the back side.

    Should I put them back into circulation?

    I would be tempted to keep the B46379270B, and offer the rest to any members wanting the others at face value + shipping.

    Fun find. I never get anything old. I would save the 1934 just for the heck of it.

    I rarely get anything old as change either. The 3 1950 notes are pretty crisp as well... I’m guessing an elderly person deposited some money they’ve had hidden in their house for years and that why the bank kept it in circulation lol

    Why that note specifically? Is it the grade looks best? Or something with the serial? I generally collect coins and historical collectibles and my knowledge with paper money is basic. Thanks again.

    I would keep them all.
    The 1950's are in pretty good shape and the 1934 is even older.
    Great circulation finds. I would hold onto them.

    I got a $10 like those in change some time ago, about 10 years. When I tried to spend it—without looking to see that it was an older issue—the cashier refused to take it. I tried it in another store with the same results. I took it to my bank and asked for change. The bank told me that they could not accept that bill, but would allow me to deposit it pending its passage through the system. The deposit was on hold for more than a week, so I went back to the bank to have them check on their "system." It was then that they took the hold off the deposit.

    Um that's ridiculous. Are people so clueless as to think that older currency doesn't hold their face value? Would they refuse a penny from 1910? Or a 1964 quarter?
    I don't understand at all.
    Just because they changed the design, doesn't mean the old bills lose their face value. I am incredulous by this incompetence.

    Some people don’t understand that old currency didn’t have the bar strip inside.. and on older notes (not sure of year exactly) the marker test will react as if it’s fake. A buddy of mine used an old $100 bill (which the bank gave him) for dinner and the owner accused him of trying to pay with fake money. He brought it back to bank and it passed their machine test but said they had to put a deposit hold until it clears further tests - even though the same bank gave him the bill a few hours prior

    Regarding the 1934-C: I'd keep it.

    If you’re able to that would be cool.
    I just haven’t gotten something - paper money - this old in circulation in a long time.. so was curious if they have enough value to warrant keeping them

    I think it has to do with that pen that cashiers run across bills to see if they are counterfeits. The bank didn't have that kind of pen, and after two cashiers and a branch manager looked at the bill, they came to the determination I wrote of above.

    The bill was in mint condition, and I think it may have been from the late Fifties. In retrospect, I should have kept it.

    Younger generations are mostly clueless about the 'analog world' we grew up in - any coins other than cents, nickels, dimes and quarters will draw a double take or blank stare from many young cashiers - I like to give circulated clad Kennedy halves for tips - very few kids seem appreciative of the 'bogus coinage' :oops:

    Considering they're worth $20 and up I wouldn't. The 34C I can see was worth $160 in XF condition (but I could be wrong), but the 1950 were CH-63 were worth about $75 a piece, but again I may have that wrong.
