There is nothing special about that serial number.
And a couple of years old. The original poster hasn't been seen since 2018.
No.. Not at all.
I worked in a coin shop for about 10 years and did most of the paper.
My boss, who has run a shop since the 1960s, was constantly asking me "what's this one worth". I'm on disability now and he still calls me with this question.
My answer was usually the same.
I don't mean to sound like a jerk but that is usually the reality. Serial numbers are a very specific audience to boot.
Here's a great example of "what's it worth". Amusing as well.
Before I worked at the shop I managed a truck stop then painted for 5 years.
Shortly after I started I was organizing the paper money and started to laugh. The boss asked why and I informed him there was a nice $100 star note in the pile that I had sold him at least 10 years earlier for $105.
He had it marked full retail at $150.
It sat there a few years until a guy came in from out of state and actually had that note on his list. It did have a small tear but other than that high end AU.
We sold it for $106.
I told my boss he was my hero. It only took him 10 years to make a buck!
Come to think of it I made $5. I got that note at face value.
It's worth a buck.
$1.00 is not valuable anymore.
Don't be so negative amigo. I prepared a real nice dinner the other night at a cost of about 3 bucks.
That buck was a third of a good meal.
It's how you spend that buck.
