Series dates of US one dollar notes.


Recommended Posts

I'm putting together a set of US one dollar notes 1899-current by type. Recently I got some really nice 63 one dollar notes in change, and some from the 80's-90's as well, so I figured, heck why not get all the years for the FRN's.

 

Well, searching the internet has really given me little information of the dates I need. Even the BEP's site only lists the first couple, and wikipedia, my normal compilation of random facts only lists the large size dates.

 

This is the list I've come up with so far, PLEASE tell me if I am missing a year! And if you happen to have a green eagle or 28 red seal for sale, let me know. :ninja:

Wow, awesome Jeff, thanks! Where did you find the info? Or do you just happen to know, lol.

 

I am not worried about sig combinations, or series A, B, C, etc....I am just working on a year and type set from 1899-current. Although with the cheap prices on the newer notes, I might get the A, B, C....series and whatnot.

 

Thanks again, twas a big help!

The easiest source I've found for stuff like this is Coin World's Paper Money Values: Link. You can search by type, denomination, seal color, or Friedberg number. Very handy.

as long as you're collecting by type, don't forget about the experimentals! you'll need the R & S silver certificates, and at least one web-press note. :ninja: there's other experimental silvers out there, but they're a lot less noticeable. the only way they distinguish themselves from regular issues are the serial block letters.

 

Web Press Notes

That said, don't forget the Web press notes with the check number on the reverse. :ninja: I actually got one in change on Mackinac Island once.

Really?? :ninja: I guess I'll have to look out for those varieties before I have my complete set.

Haha, you guys just can't leave me well enough alone! I will surely look into those though, With the amount of currency I get to rummage through I will surely find at least a web press! Silver certs are far and few between, but now that I know what numbers to look out for I'll have to check mine, lol. Also the red letters, I've heard about those, I'll have to see if I can grab a cheap one. ;)

You see what you get when you ask these sort of questions? :ninja: If it hadn't been for some bleeping many people here my collecting interests would be one heck of a lot narrower and less confusing and I wouldn't be sidetracked by Romanian banknotes, Portuguese coins, Danish banknotes, Netherlands silver commems etc. ;)

Updated, down to 3 FRN's and a green eagle for the 1899-current date set. :ninja:

 

Updated, thanks to Jeff I now own every year of the small sized notes from 1928-2006! I only own the year, not every series or variant mind you, but it still took a lot longer to put together than I thought it would. On a good note, all but about 4 of the 1963-2006 notes were found at work in the registers and purchased for face.

 

Now I just need to get them all in Ch. Unc. And that 1918 green eagle I need to find. I am having some issues finding one for the price I am willing to pay, I think I may have to offer more than $130 for a Xf/Au soon. Eh, I'm sure I'll get lucky on eBay one of these days........maybe, lol.

Well, I've been able to get some quick photos of my $1 set, and $5 type set. I still have to get the green eagle to complete the 20th century $1 set, and then I have to upgrade, get the R&S experimentals, and the web presses. And then get every series, that could take a while.

Thanks Dave, but now the hardest part comes, series, upgrades, special interests. I have a LONG road on this, lol. It's fun though, I really enjoy the challenge of finding them, and it's still nice to be able to find nice circulating Xf-Au notes, all the way back to 1963 on a regular basis!
