Your $1 bill could be worth $1,000 – the exact “date” details to look for
MISTAKES can really skyrocket the value of your cash — you may have a dollar bill that could be worth thousands, a TikToker has revealed.
With banknotes, this happens when errors occur during the printing process.
This happened with a particular bill introduced by George Washington that was created over the last decade.
Eric Miller often shares his knowledge of rare coins and dollar bills through his TikTok channel known as “thecoinchannel”, This is now home to more than 4 million followers.
Here’s what he uncovered about a particular dollar bill with an error.
where to look
The year on the invoice to look for in this case is 2013.
The lower right corner of the front of the bill reads “Series 2013” next to Mr. Washington’s picture.
But there are two important elements to look for in an invoice bearing this date – and they’re both found on the serial number, which can be found under “America” on the same page.
First you should look for a “B” and then according to Eric it must have a star at the end.
This is known as a duplicate serial number error with an asterisk.
If you find it, it could be worth thousands.
For example, an example of a matched pair set certified by the Paper Money Guaranty grading service sold for a total of $4,504 in a November auction.
58 bids were received and two bills were respectably graded 30 and 67 (the highest possible grade for a dollar bill is 70).
What to do if you find one
Still, Eric said there’s one more step you should take to make sure you have one.
The coin collector recommends to “Search for star notes” on My Currency Collection.
Then enter the serial number including the star you found.
“If you get this important note that it was printed twice — you’ve got one,” Eric said.
With just the Star Note, the 2013 bill is worth between $20 and $30, according to Eric.
Other valuable bills
It’s possible you have other bills with star grades that could be valuable.
Another shows the 1988 series with an example sale for 24,000 in an auction in September 2017.
Also, in a separate video, Eric revealed that a $20 bill with a Del Monte banana sticker could be worth up to $400,000.
This is because the invoice was printed over the sticker, with the serial number and a seal covering part of it.
In addition to bills, be sure to check your change for rare nickels, half dollars, dimes and pennies as these can also be worth thousands.
For example, your cent could be worth $47,000 if it included an “Evidence Detail.”
