They May Be Worth up to $150,000

Check Your Wallet for These $1 Bills –

Coin and currency collectors in the US are willing to pay up to $150,000 in search of rare $1 bills with a particular printing error from the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

Two batches of $1 bills were printed, one in 2014 and another in 2016, that feature this particular error, and the bills went into circulation before the mistake was found.

There are three things you need to know to identify the misprinted bills that could be worth a small fortune:

How To Identify Bills Worth up to $150,000

1. The Series date located near the photograph of George Washington must-read “Series 2013”

2. The bill must have a “B” Federal Reserve Seal above the serial number

3. The serial number must end with a star (*) and fall between B00000001* – B00250000* or B03200001*-B09600000*

If you are lucky enough to stumble across one of these $1 bills in your wallet, you are one step closer to cashing in. But the value of this particular misprint is in pairing it to the other bill with a matching serial number.

What To Do if You're the Lucky Owner of One of the Misprinted Bills

Only nine complete pairs have been identified so far. However, the Zegers/Winograd Project was established to catalog all the bills found and facilitate buying or selling to create a matching pair. There are currently over 10,000 bills identified by the project listing the current owner and serial number.
