    How about a three-of-a-kind "almost"; only 9 more to go for a full district set.:banghead: three-sevens-district-a-g-j_face.jpg

    Sorry I don't get excited over "fancy" serial numbers. They just don't interest me, but can see why they would, someone else. To each their own. At one time, I carried a dollar with a string of 9's in the serial number. It was my go to bill for liars poker. Worked until the group figured it out and wouldn't let me use it anymore, so I spent it. "Almost" only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. If it were a race, 2nd place would be "almost" the winner. Or just another name for the 1st looser.

    But, hey, silver Roosie in the Coinstar reject bin, so it wasn't a total loss...

    If you withdrew an extra $180 you should have gotten the first one as a radar note. So close but so far.

    I actually did withdraw $200, but the notes from our ATM are always random, and usually pretty well circulated.

    Bummer. It looked like a crisp note and most ATM's have notes in order. You were only 9 notes away for it.

    I've only gotten consecutive notes once or twice, and only a few at a time. On the other hand, that means more variety. But I go through cash much more slowly these days, of course.

    It's always fun getting consecutive notes especially out in the wild. And boy, if one of them is fancy too... score!

    Our local back always "shuffles" the ATM cash; said it helps prevent "paper jams" and "over/under disbursements". Yep and I still have beach front property in New Mexico for sale.:)

And the series number for the $20.00 dollar bill is 2013 and the one dollar bill series number is 2003
