Default 1976 $2 bill

My wife has been scouring the safe for savings bonds for GWiz, and has found several cards with cash in them from many many years ago, but just now, Mrs. Wiz said I found a $2 bill from her grandmother....

That reminded me, I have a $2 bill in an American Heritage Dictionary that I've had since BEFORE I met Mrs. Wiz 27 years ago. It's from 1976 and it's PERFECT. Wonder if some day it might be worth $3. I've had that in my dictionary since college in the mid 80's.

I have a bunch of those as well, part of my retirement plan. Eventually burn them for heat.

I remember when my Father was stationed in Bethel Park, just south of Pittsburgh, in the 50s. He was paid in all $2 bills because the locals said that the GIs were not spending their money downtown and that was the Army's way of showing differently.

I have a $2 bill from 1953 and it is worth $4, so you do have a shot at hitting $3.

My grandfather collected $2 bills for a long time. whenever he had a few extra bucks to save, he would go to the bank and get new $2 bills and put them in his safe deposit box. Sometimes he would get five or ten of them, all new with consecutive serial numbers. When he died in '74 his safe deposit box had hundreds of them, from as far back as the 1930s, all new and basically never circulated. I don't know what my grandmother did with them.

Got a bunch of them. Evidently, they are still worth $2. Which is worth way less than when they came out. F'n shitty investment if there ever was one.

I'm not really a collector but picked this up last week.
We believe it may be the only one of it's kind/shape in existence.

Not super valuable but pretty cool.
