I have a small pile of $1 - $2 US notes ranging from 1953, through the 1960s and 1970s. The problem is, most of them have numerous signs of circulation such as folds, wrinkles, one or two torn corners and one or two pen marks. Among them are 2 red seal 1953 $2 with Monticello backs (which appear to be very common) and a few 1957 silver certificates (which also appear very common). Taking all of them as a whole, only a very few of the older bills probably deserve the description "good condition." Most would fall between "circulated" and "heavily circulated." Is it fair to assume that these have little to no value beyond face? Are they just spending money? Is there anything in particular in that time frame that I should look for, just in case? Errors, rare printings, etc.? Otherwise, would some of you just reintroduce these back into circulation? Or just cash them at a bank? I will probably keep a few just because, but I don't think I need all of them.
