Star Notes

For the past couple years I've been checking all of my bills for star notes. Over time I've accumulated about 30 of them. They are mostly $1 bills along with a couple fives a ten and two twenty's. For the most part they are in average circulated condition; some a little better, others a little worse. 

Are they worth any premium over regular bills? If so how much? Is there a point of hoarding them or are they so common they're worthless?   
Thanks.

Have you looked them up to see if they are a rare star note?

Where would I look that up?

In a book on currency. That should help you out. Ask the ANA library they should have what your looking for.

So-called Star Notes are replacements for defective notes detected by the BEP during production. Small size Federal Reserve Notes that are from recent series have a very small premium over face, particularly if they are average circulated examples. There could be some infrequent exceptions, but generally such notes are "spenders" unless they're in Uncirculated condition.
