    Is there a thing such as single quad like 33337395? If so how much would it be worth

  2. Jeffrey Strain says:

    Yes, but those tend to be the type that collectors will keep if they come across them themselves, but not spend money to get.

  3. Dancie says:

    I have a 1985 $100 bill that has the 20826820 is it worth anything

  4. Jeffrey Strain says:

    It likely wouldn’t be worth more than face value to collectors — it’s one they might keep if they found, but not one they would pay for.

    I have 3 bills that I was wondering if they had any value (all ones) first number is 2006 bill 95666855 the other bill is 2006 03518341 and the last bill is 1977 09944250 Are they worth anything?

  6. Jeffrey Strain says:

    No, you likely wouldn’t be able to get anything above face value for those bills that would make it worth the time and effort of selling them.

    I have a few bills that I thought were interesting. I have a $10 bill with the serial number JA57317695A. Are there 1 number bookends? I also have a $1 bill with the serial number G95288349F. Which is a one number bookend.Then I have a $1 bill with the serial number H60991753A that number has the date September 9 1753. The date the first Steem boat got to the US. I have another $1 bill with the serial number L16092928V in that number there is 9292. And finally I have a $1 bill that has the serial number F78882609F. In that is 888. Are any of these bills worth anything.

    No, none of these is worth more than face value for the serial numbers…

  12. Lightning Larry says:

    I must agree with jeffery. Lately, EBay has been flooded with $2 bills. Craigslist both costs FAR LESS to use and it can be used locally also which could lead to higher profits.

  13. Lightning Larry says:

    Can a ink stamp or ball point pen be safely removed from paper currency? And if so, how would someone go about doing it without losing value of the bill(s)?
