Joyce writes: My late husband used to keep US one dollar bills (and occasionally higher amounts) that had 5-7 of the same serial number in a row…..are there collectors of these bills? I have no idea what to do with them. Thank you.
Fancy serial numbers are popularly collected. Besides trying to get notes with repeating numbers, there are many other number patterns collected. There are lots of variations such as solid numbers (for examples all 2s or 1s) or “radar” notes. Radar notes have numbers that read the same frontward or backwards, like the word “radar”. Repeating patterns are also popular, i.e. 018018018 etc as well as low serial numbers or #1 notes.
You might want to make a list of the notes, their Federal Reserve bank and the serial numbers to show to a dealer who purchases currency.
