Not a bad find, but not a pristine note....it's got many visible flaws.
Maybe worth $25 ?
To get a note worth a multiple of face value...you need several factors including rarity (age), serial number, blocks, type (i.e, HAWAII), and condition among other sought-after identifiers.
Go high enough and the note is worth a huge amount relative to face value, like my 1942 HAWAII $1 SC.
some cool info. I don’t know anything about this stuff.
Yeah it’s a pretty crusty bill that has seen it’s fair share of abuse. I’m not really concerned about value in general. I paid face value for it. Is it worth keeping as a cool little piece of my eclectic collection ?
Sure, until you get something better that is preserved and graded.
I think you can get some 1930's SC's with SN < 100 for under $200. In 65 condition !
Read some of the threads in PAPER MONEY here at CT. Check out COOLSERIALNUMBERS.
Get a few cheap SC's on Ebay for starters and check out (before bidding and then buying) the Weekly Currency Auctions over at Heritage.
004 seems fairly low
Yeah, but if the printing ends at 3 digits -- 999 -- it's low but not as unusual with millions or tens of millions of bills printed.
707, are you a coin collector interested in bills or just starting interest in both ?
What kind of bills interest you -- low SN's, special types (Gold Certificate, Silver Certificate, Hawaii, North Africa), colored seals, cool serial numbers like quads/repeaters/radars/same numbers, etc. ?
Again, best to look at some of the threads including the LATEST ACQUISITIONS thread and see what others are buying. I myself have just gotten active into paper currency in the last year or so.
Fair enough, maybe this one is a bit better
But value is limited by conditiona grade, if that matters to you.
Nah, doesn't matter to me.. I collect items because I like them and enjoy the thrill of the hunt and finding them not purchasing them.
Collecting items such as currency/coins or comics books or baseball cards etc. because they're valuable or maybe someday will go up in value seems like a fool's errand. You'd also have to sell them to realize any gains but then you won't have the item. I'm really not an investor I'm more of a collector.
Don't really want to be a caretaker to a ton of valuable items that might need to be insured and protected under lock and key etc..
Just want to enjoy them and not worry about how much they're worth
