Default Holy Grail of dollars bills!

I go through all of my change daily, looking for silver, and all bills as I receive them before spending. Today, I was going through my cashed paycheck, and found the mother of low numbers!

Apparently, that note was on the FIRST sheet printed in that series. Since 1981 the Fed Reserve sold the first 'few sheets as un-cut or as un-cut pairs/groups. I think the $20 note was printed 32 notes per sheet.

So someone has taken an uncirculated/un-cut note destroyed its uncirculated/un-cut value by cutting the note and spending (put into circulation). The collector value for un-cut 'new' notes is about 3 to 4 X's face value.

So THAT'S why 01-90 carry more value than 91-100. Makes sense. Someone prolly stole the sheet from a collector, cut it up and spent it.

Yeah, a random uncirculated note carries multi-face value, but from what I've been seeing, 00000001-00000099 are in the lower four-figure range. I'm gonna sit on this one for a while, while I contact several collectors I know for some advice on this one. I know I could sell it to a dealer for a quick buck, but it may be worth my while to auction it to drive the price up. As rare as it is, I'm not going to blow this chance.

Thanks for the info!

$20 is about all it is worth now ... it has been circulated! ... But check with a collector any way. The low number might still have a little more value, it there is no visible wear to the note.

I have been. The low number is what counts. I have seen a few examples from other runs, and anything below 00000090 starts at $1,200. This is why I am taking my time, to find as much as I can on this particular run. I need to find out which destination MB was.

I think 'M' is the Lew/Rois; 2013 series and 'B' designate issued by Fed of New York.
