    I found a 1988 $1 bill and i was just wondering where is the cut off line when your collecting them? Do you keep 80s notes or are they just not worth anything???

    There's not really a cutoff line, if you like it, keep it. If you don't, spend it. It's that simple.

    That's a broad question. I have a series 2004A $50 New York Star (GB*) that is worth $500-$750 in CH-CU, and a series 1996 $100 Cleveland Star (AD*) worth $900-$1200 in CH-CU. Different years and different denominations have all kinds of different values depending on the amounts printed, and survivors. The modern-era is most FRN's starting in 1963. Your best bet would be to follow auctions, visit dealer websites, and/or get a copy of the Standard Guide to Small Size Paper Money 1928-to date (10th edition).

    What SteveInTampa said. Buy the book first. You'll be amazed at what recent notes can fetch.

    ....also what brg5658 said.:D

    Depends on the note. That's why you need a book. It'll list all the printings for different series.

    I consider anything below 640,000 a low printing.....but that's just my humble opinion.
