Chumlee at Gold Silver Pawn in Vegas offered $1.25 each for all my $2 bills saved over the years...

told that doofus to F-off at 1.25 each..

Got a Six Pack of Busch Tall Boy Cans at the liquor store next door to tuck in my belt as I hit the Strip, just like Cousin Eddie

I have a couple of the $2 bills.

I also have a $5 bill that doesn't have printed "In God We Trust" on it. Probably worth $5.50 now.

Try to use one at the local fast food restaurant and watch the kid cashier's head explode.

I have a bunch of old paper money. I'll try to post some pictures.

I have a couple of Series of 1914 Bills, I believe collectors call them "foldies" because they are about twice the size of modern notes. One is a 5, the other is a 10. Interestingly enough, Andrew Jackson is on the 10 dollar note.

I have several Silver Certificates, including a few funny backs, and some 1950's series 2 dollar notes which have the Monticello on the back instead of the Declaration signing.

I have a $500 in fairly good shape as well. Series of 1934.

Anytime I get an old style note in change, I save it. And I collect 1's older than the 1980s. Check the dates, sometimes you get some old ones!

I just checked for the only time in the last 25 years or so, from being a kid yet...I have twenty Silver certs 1957 a mostly and b also.....including one that shows just series 1957......

and one res note series 1985 but watt makes it special is damn nearly uncirculated BUT the print is off about 3/16 inch or so, to the top so the top is missing about 1/2 the print where it say Fed Res note......the bottom white edge is wide....

so a defective note..... probably worth a grand or so....

many sheets of 1-2-3-5 cent stamps too.....probably worthless....
