    Flying Blue Eagle is an Expert on this site who has the current documentation of the possible monetary values for currency and coins. As such, I'm sure that he will eventually come along to address your post. He has requested that the following information be provided about paper currency in order for him to be able to give you the most accurate answers.

    #1 - Series date, Example 1935, 1935A ,1935B,Ect.
    #2 - Signatures - Example - Priest -Anderson
    #3 - Color of seal,- color of serial numbers, Is there a star before or after the serial numbers, what color?
    #4 - What is written above on the very top, Example - SILVER CERTIFICATE<Federal reserve notes,-treasury or coin notes. Leagle tender notes, etc. etc.
    It would also help to know that actual graded condition of them. The following information from the site 1.9) How do you grade the condition of paper money? should be very helpful in making that determination as to their graded condition.

    Thanks!

    1.9) How do you grade the condition of paper money?

    The condition of a note is critical to its value. Lowering the
    grade of a note one notch can decrease its value by 1/3 or even
    1/2. An expensive note which falls between two categories might
    be worth a thousand dollars more in the higher category than the
    lower one. Thus, it's often important to be more precise than
    using a limited number of categories.

    But here's a general guideline. Note that many dealers have
    slightly different grading systems, especially with various
    sub-grades of uncirculated. There's no official system of grading,
    unfortunately. But these are pretty much universally accepted.
    I've received a lot of input and tried to hammer out the best
    descriptions for each category.

    Crisp Uncirculated, UNC or CU: This means absolutely not the
    slightest sign of any handling or wear or folding or *anything*.
    Some people use additional grades to distinguish qualities such
    as perfect centering or other printing characteristics. Certainly
    a note which has centering problems which are visible from a
    distance of 1 meter (3 feet) should have this mentioned in the
    condition description.

    Almost Uncirculated (or About Uncirculated), AU: This means there
    is a slightly detectable imperfection such as a counting fold on one
    corner or slightest fold in the center (nothing which breaks the
    surface of the paper) or a pinhole. At first glance it looks like
    an UNC note.

    Extremely Fine, EF or XF: Generally three light folds or one strong
    fold which breaks the surface. There may be slight rounding at the
    corners.

    Very Fine, VF: May have several folds although the note is still
    crisp and has a minimum of dirt. There may be minor tears or very
    small holes but nothing which distracts from the overall appearance
    of the note. Take an uncirculated note and crumple it once in your
    hand, then flatten it out: this is a Very Fine note. Repeat the
    crumpling and it's still pretty much a VF note.

    Fine, F: A circulated note where individual folds and creases may
    no longer be visible. To distinguish this from a VF note, when
    inspecting a Fine note, it clearly does not look like a note which
    has merely been crumpled a few times: It doesn't have the crispness
    and brightness of a VF note. No tears may extend into the printing.
    This is your average in-the-wallet note.

    Very Good, VG: Tears and small holes can be present. The note is
    not crisp at all. The is your lower quality in-the-wallet note.
    Lots of people on the 'net don't realize that a note in "very good"
    condition is really pretty lousy.

    Good, G: Small pieces missing, graffiti. A worn out note.

    Fair: Major tears, etc. A badly worn out note.

    Poor: Even worse.

    To grade a note precisely, it can help to hold the note about
    20 cm (7 inches) under a strong light source (use the same source
    for comparing notes) and on top of a white piece of paper and
    use a 3x or 4x power magnifying glass. Make sure your hands are
    clean before handling a note. This method will show a lot of
    minor imperfections which are not normally visible.

    Note that note from many countries have standard features which
    exist for even Uncirculated notes. Some notes from Bangladesh,
    Bhutan, Burma/Myanmar, India, Nepal, and Pakistan are only found
    with staple holes where staples are always used to hold packs of
    notes together. Most dealers list Uncirculated notes of this type
    as having the usual staple holes (often abbreviated as uSH-UNC).

    Also, some notes printed in France (for about 15 different
    countries) have a slight crinkle effect.

    Yes! Hello there, friend! :)

    Thank God that you're alive, at least on the mend now and BACK, F.B.E. I was really beginning to worry and wondering what was going on with you! We need you around here! But, more importantly, you need to be healthy, period!

    I feel badly that you had to go through what you did! :(

    I know that you aren't quite "up to snuff" just yet, but I hope that you will be soon!

    God's Love and Peace to You!

    Hi
    I still don't know how to work this (maybe age has something to do with it) but here goes.
    The 1976 Two Dollar Bill has a circle on the left side with an H in the middle and around the circle it say's Federal Reserve Bank Of St Louis, Missouri. Also, what do the numbe 8 in all four corners mean?

    Katzkrib - Thank you for the reply and the comment.
    Now for the answer you are waiting for ::: The 1976 $2.00 bill is from the ( st. louis MO. Federal reserve bank::::: EF-40 UNC-63
    1535H. ------ $ 10.00
    1535* $ 5.00 $ 20.00

    History ,on your other question 9 THE NUMBER( 8)
    THE UNITED STATES IS DIVIDED UP INTO -12 districts, Starting on the East coast at Boston as #1then going threw the number 12,which is ( SAN FRANCISCO ) There is also a letter that is sometimes used with the number:: EXAMPLE - Boston would be ( A-1)- San FRANcisco would be ( L-12 ):: Atlanta would be ( F-6 ) These districts are where the ( FEDERAL RESERVE BANKS ARE AT ; SO ( H-8 is ST LOUIS MO. :::::

    If you look at different bills you will see what I mean, If you would like a list ,just let me know ;;;; Good luck and have a wonderful day and most of all GOD BLESS;; F.B.E.

    Got my hands on a bunch of 1928s and 1953s when someone used them to buy cigarettes at a store I work at. I bought them back from the register and brought them home. They are all in "wallet" condition (one of the 28s has the top corner torn off, apparently as a "luck" thing) with surface dirt that is easily removed and deep folding across the center.

    Here is the info for them:

    Two 1928s, one D series, one G.
    Signatures: G- Clark and Snyder; D- S(illegible), Morgenthau(?) Jr
    Both red seals, red serial numbers, no stars
    Written at top: United States Note

    Seven 1953s, all A series
    Signatures: Priest and (can't tell, long and starts with G, ends in -ry)
    All red seals, red serials, no stars
    Written at top: United States Note

    One 1953A
    Signatures: Priest and (can't tell, long and starts with G, ends in -ry)
    All red seals, red serials, starred (*01230707A)
    Written at top: United States Note

    One 1953, A series
    Signatures: Priest and Anderson
    All red seals, red serials, no stars
    Written at top: United States Note

    None are in sequence.

    Even if they are of no value above face, it was sad to see someone give them up, especially with them being so dirty, so I rescued them to put them somewhere where they will suffer no more indignities, heh. A soft damp cloth removes almost all dirt and makes them look almost-new, with the exception of the creases. I am afraid to clean them too hard lest I do more harm than good.

    Hi, I have a 2 dollar Bill with the markings of an H with a circle around it. On the left side. On the lower right side it has An next to the 8. Also on this bill it has either japanese markings or chineese markings like it was stamped out side of the US. The 2 dollar bill is series 1976 with Jefferson on the front. Not sure but I think this bill is very rare like it was from the original batch when they 1st came out. What do you think it might be worth?
