    I got a nice surprise in my change today. 2 x $100 with consecutive serials... with my Initials as the letters!! the notes are very crispy and new. Never been folded by the looks.

    i'd assume consecutive 100's would be worth nothing extra but these ill keep for the lettering =D

    Do many of you guys get consecutive notes in change?? is it common? I've only really been talking note of serials for a few months now and these are the 1st ones I've seen out in the wild.

    My partner works the front desk at a dental practice.
    A few months ago a guy paid his dental bill with 10 x old paper 100 dollar notes consecutive numbers. Becouse she knew me she rang me instantly. I said straight away I will buy them for $1000. She told her boss they were worth something so she kept them.
    Not happy with her.:(
    Am still trying to get them. I have not seen them yet but believe they are in near unc condition ie crisp and unfolded.
    With a dental bill over $1000 dollars I think he had to raid his collection. Poor guy wonder why he did not at least throw them on eBay rather than give them to the dentist.
    Maybe he just did not know what he had.

    My wife just tells everyone I am a nerd who collects crap.

    Amazing what people will give you until they think it might be worth money.

    Sad thing is, I often pay a little more than what an item is worth because I want to get people coming back to me, possibly with something that is worth having.

    Others have an inflated idea of what something is worth, especially old coins so they often do themselves out of a quick sale because I haven't got the energy to educate them and they only think I am trying to rip them off anyway at the end.


    I picked up 25x consecutive $100 '08 last prefix in UNC from a bank, catalogue price around $175. Actual value $100. No one wants them it appears, I even offered them to a dealer, not interested. My wife has now spent most of them back into circulation, I guess the few I saved are worth more now.
