If You Have A Dollar Bill Like This, Prepare To Get Rich!

In this day and age with internet shopping and shipping becoming more and more popular, people are regularly selling their old junk and items they no longer need to make some extra money. An exciting discovery in November 2014 has prompted people to open up their wallets and closely inspect their bills to determine if they can make money from their money. The unique 8-digit serial number on American bills can be immensely valuable to collectors if the number is viewed as rare or ‘fancy.

Some of the newer $100 bills can be worth thousands of dollars but any dollar value bill can be a potential jackpot. The serial number can drastically alter the value of a bill of any value if it represents unique, sentimental or historically important number patterns. Some conventionally valuable serial numbers are when all 8 digits are the same (for example 1111-1111), ascending or descending or in repeating patterns (for example, a $1 bill with the serial number: 6767-6767 sold for over $85 on eBay). Low and high serial numbers (for instance: 0000-0011 or 9999-9900) are also considered quite rare and can be very valuable to collectors. If the serial number reads the same backward and forwards (for example, 0682-8260) or a collection of bills have consecutive serial numbers, you can receive substantial sums of money from avid collectors.

The madness of serial number bill collectors does not end at repeating numbers and unlikely patterns. Many collectors will also pay substantial sums of money if the 8-digit serial number can be represented as a personally significant birthday, famous historical date (for example, 09112001) or even a combination of the two if it is the birthday of a famous historical figure. There is a growing market for bill selling with numerous websites where collectors can post the serial number they want and what they are willing to pay. In the current economy, a little bonus can go a long way for many people, who knows what might be lurking at the bottom of a purse or wallet.
