    First question asked and answered. No I do not have a phone that will take a clear enough picture for you to see and so i will describe it in depth.
    At the moment, money is going out so quick and kind of slow coming in and a new phone is on the horizon but not in my pocket just yet.
    This is a simple one. On the right side of a $1 bill is the serial number and a face plate number. When you have 2 bills that are in sequence with the serial numbers... Example,
    1st bill...C 03247304 E
    2nd bill... C 03247305 E
    Are the face plate numbers also supposed to be in consecutive order.?
    Thank you

    No. The presses use several plates in rotation, so if you get a whole stack of sequential serial numbers, you'll see three or four different plate numbers cycling through the pile.

    With the phone, try this. Keep the phone steady and not too close, some people recommend placing the phone on a water glass placed mouth down with the phone lens over the edge of the glass. Place the coin/bill/etc. on the table so the phone focuses on it and is motionless. Take the pic. Get PhotoScape (a free app) to help with cropping, etc. Happy clicking.
