Have A Two Dollar Bill? It Could Be Worth Thousands
Why is it that many times when you need to look for or retrieve something you own, you can't remember where you placed it?
That's pretty much my life. I put stuff away that I don't have any use for in the near future, and then, when I need it, I've forgotten where I placed it.
And right now, I'm searching high and low for a couple of 2-dollar bills that I have stashed away...somewhere. I'm just not sure where.
The reason? It might be worth a whole lot more than 2 dollars. Probably not, but worth checking anyway. Why would these bills be with more? According to a CBS News website article, a 2003 two-dollar bill recently sold for $2,400 according to Heritage Auctions.
The 2003 bill had a very low serial number. It was then resold for $4000. The U.S. Currency Auction website has a list detailing the series year, type, seal color, average circulated note price, and uncirculated price of various two-dollar bills.
For example, a 1928B two-dollar bill with a red seal color could be worth somewhere between 70 to 17 dollars if it's an average circulated note and $1000+ for an uncirculated bill.
U.S. two-dollar bills come in several seal colors - green, red, brown, brown with a red serial number, brown with a blue serial number, and red with a blue serial number. Bills containing red or blue serial numbers could be worth between $125 and $3000+.
The U.S. Currency Auction website shows the majority of two-dollar bills listed have a red seal. Those bills can sell for anywhere between $3 to $2500 depending on the qualifications.
