    So the wifelet got some money out of the ATM the other day ($500) and each bill is brand new crisp and consecutive. Dont have them in front of me (hid them away) but they are very interesting. If i can remember correctly I have number 000498 000499 000500, and 000990 through 0001000. Plus others i cant recall.

    I have zero experience in this kind of thing. A quick check on EBAY reveals people actually sell these for profit. What do you guys think?

    I think the 0001000 is worth some extra.

    I get consecutive serial numbered one dollar bills from Wal Mart all the time. One day when I got home I realized i had gotten 3 such notes, and they were all star notes! Wish I had noticed at the register. They obviously had an entire pack of consecutive star notes at that register.

    People really have some kind of hang up with numbers on currency to that extent? I would rather hit the strip club or go to the beach.

    Wish I had known people pay for this. I had pulled cash for a tropical trip and had a handful of consecutive $100's. Tellers must see this all of the time when the banks get freshly printed notes.

    Me and an old co worker used to raid these and the BU state quarter rolls at the register at the supermarket.. And we had a buddy who worked in the cash office who would look out for us too.

    Fun times.

    Most of them didnt mean shit to me except as something to sell and buy bullion with unless it was really cool.

    I have a few star red 'US notes' and star silver dollar certificates, and some really old fed reserve currency all mostly $1s $2and $5s.

    But all modern modern currency star notes that we used to find I ended up trading for silver coins.

    I'm not so sure "ordinary" consecutive bills are worth anything. You can buy uncut sheets.

    New ones aren't but the older they are the better the premium.

    Also I got a 5 dollar bill with the serial number ME 126912692 I kept it as a good luck charm.

    I found $300 in consecutive new star notes a couple of weeks ago. I'm currently selling them on the bay for $2.99 each and they're going like hotcakes. After expenses, it's still like getting my silver for half price. Fancy S/Ns sell quite easily so I'll put up a listing anytime I find one.

    I once found a bunch of star notes. I thought the were pretty common so I didnt bother holding them. I will from now on though.

    Going through my stash. All 20's. I found one with 4 9's. A couple others semi interesting but nothing I can retire on I'm sure. :).
