I don't collect paper money so please tell me what makes this note special...I'd like to learn to see what others notice immediately.
Note this thread's title and the bill's serial number.
U.S. President Abraham Lincoln died on April 15, 1865, (i.e.: 04-15-1865).
The serial number is: 04161865
The degree to which this $100 bill note may or may not be "special" is the central issue. (I think we can all agree that it's at least $100 special!)
Look at the end of the serial number, “4-16-1865.”
Agree, but still may have some interest to the right collector…imo…Spark
Just out of curiosity I just checked the date of Ben Franklin's death. Apr 17, 1790. Doesn't really matter here, but I thought April 17 was quite a coincidence, considering Lincoln died on Apr 15 and the serial number has 04-16. I think that's the kind of dumb thing a collector of oddities might actually pay for. I would if it wasn't a hundred. I'm too cheap for that.
To that I would add: If you have to explain something's significance, it is not significant.
