Check Your Wallet: Your $1 Bills Could be Worth Hundreds or Thousands of Dollars


Very little is as awesome as holding the winning number in your hot little hands, whether you’ve purchased the fateful lottery ticket or your number was just called at the deli. (Wait, am I the only person who gets excited by that?

What can I say; I like to celebrate the small wins.) However, you may be sitting on a winning number of another kind without even realizing it. What am I talking about?

Check Your Dollar Bills

Specifically, dollar bills with strange serial numbers — ones that aren’t easy to come by. The collectors at have created a list of their most-wanted serial numbers, and you might have a bill with one of these sequences on it in your wallet.
Turns out antique coins aren’t the only currency worth cash to collectors.
Check out the full list to see if you’ve got any of these rare bills, but here’s a rundown of the sort of serial numbers these collectors are looking for: 7 repeating digits in a row on $1 Federal Reserve Notes (i.e. 09999999, 77777776) 7 of a kind on $1 Federal Reserve Notes (i.e. 00010000, 99999099) Super repeaters on $1 Federal Reserve Notes (i.e. 67676767) Double quads on $1 Federal Reserve Notes (i.e. 00009999) and more!

Can You Really Get Rich With Dollar Bills?

Just ask these collectors and experts, who estimate specific “hot” serial numbers to be worth big bucks: One particularly patriotic collector is interested in bills with the serial number 07041776 (in honor of the date of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence). He’s said to be asking $500 to $1,000 for $2 bills with this serial number. (Why $2 bills? Each one portrays the historical event.) In the U.K., an eBay seller is reported to have made £7,100 from the sale of a single 20p coin.
