    Some do collect them. Keep them if you like them or throw them on eBay you may get some bidders.

    Keep it. It's ONE DOLLAR. Whoever votes spend... on what? A can of coke?

    I call this a sudoku note, because it's more apt, nothing about this note is a ladder, any more than a pile of lumber is a jumbled staircase...

    I agree with mec2. And Keep it if you enjoy it. And who knows somebody else might like it as well. As far as getting money out of it, maybe, but from what I've seen of the fancy bills being sold there's probably not a lot of interest. But what I'm seeing in the sold auctions of fancies is not always true. With collectible items no matter what they are, today they will be popular and tomorrow they won't. An example of that is the rainbow pennies. When I was growing up they were not popular at all and now they are extremely popular, at least some of them are.

    Nyatii I like running w/scissors. Makes me feel dangerous

    I sometimes find bills with serial numbers that stand out, are interesting, or just pique my interest. There is always something there that says "Not quite", but I sometimes keep it anyway. Reminds me of a story I heard about a chimpanzee that picked up a stick and carried it around all day intending to use it, then at the end of the day didn't remember why he had it.

    Great way to accumulate a pile of cash...or sticks for that matter.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Terms like "Mixed Ladders" and "Trinaries" are just made up by sellers on ebay to entice a new collector into thinking something is rare and desirable. In reality, these aren't rare and there is no serious collector market for them. There are lots and lots of stuff like this listed in ebay, but check the completed auctions to see how many really sell and at what price.

    All that being said, if you like it, keep it, especially if its in crisp condition. However, if you keep it because you think it has value now, or will increase in value later, then it's a losing proposition. I have a worn series 2009 dollar on my dresser with the s/n 555555xy (I forget the last 2 numbers). Interesting, but it probably grades VG-Fine. It's cool, but in that condition, I'd be lucky to recoup the fees if I sell it on ebay. Can't quite manage to part with it, but it's not worth putting with the collection. Sooner or later it will end up in my wallet but until then, there it sits.

    Hope this helps

    Spiritawahili Member not from what you said. But the part about feeling dangerous running with Scissors. I love it. Great saying

    I was thinking "isn't a scrambled ladder just a pile of sticks", but, yeah. :)
