More General Information About Old Two Dollar Bills:
There is a lot of misinformation surrounding The United States two dollar bill. We have a bunch of commonly asked questions regarding them below. However, these questions don’t necessarily relate to values. When it comes to values you want to look at four main things, and this mostly applies to large-size two dollar bank notes printed before 1928. You want to check the year, signature combination, the serial number, and the condition.
Every single two dollar ever issued by The United States has a year on it. Sometimes the year is small and not in an obvious place. Each $2 bank note is also signed by the secretary of the treasury and the treasurer of the U.S. The signatures are not always terribly important, but they can sometimes create scarce varieties that were only printed for a short period of time. The serial number can occasionally make a seemingly common $2 bill worth a lot more money. Any serial number under 100 is a good find. Any note dated between 1899 and 1928 that has a star symbol in the serial number could also potentially be worth a lot of money. The most important factor is always condition. Two dollar bills are not especially rare in most circumstances. However, some uncirculated $2 notes are very difficult to locate.
