Star Note Lookup Info

Paper Money-U.S. | user_17552

I have decided to research. I have learned a lot since looking into star serial number paper currency. I have always loved star bills, as some call them, but now I understand better how their value works. Star serial numbers are created when a bill of a certain serial number has to be destroyed because it had an error. Since the government doesn't allow the same number to be used twice, a star is added instead of the letter that was once there.


This can create added value in this bill but not always. $1 notes, most certainly modern ones, are more common to occur and be found. Mostly because $1's are printed more often.But a fancy serial number, ex ME10101010* could pack a premium. $5 notes are made less and happen less often. Older dates are more valuable and fancy serial numbers (lookup a few) are more valuable. Condition of course is a factor.

If you have a star note and are curious if it might pack a premium or is rare...look it up at

very great that you researched something that interests you! so I suppose star notes in some series are like finding a well-struck Liberty Walking half-dollar, while others are like finding a about-uncirculated/uncirculated Shield cent.

true. and finding a fancy serial number with no star would be like finding a double die of a commonly collected variety, like the 1984 double ear penny or Wisconsin extra leaf ear of corn.

It drives me crazy on my Facebook forums I am a member of when people swear they have a DDO or DDR and people are having to be told "Look it up on Copper coins, or variety vista" You think at some point people will research for themselves, but sadly few do. and when informed people try telling them "it isn't a listened DDO etc" the people get mad and say the more experienced people, who researched it, have no idea. I love to research my finds, look up info. I do this for fun, and to keep my ADHD mind active, not to become a slum dog millionaire so to speak lol. thanks for talking back with me. (sorry for the copy paste lol)
