|LOW SERIAL NUMBERS
We consider a low serial number a note with Six or more Zero's before the serial number. 000000XX ( Under Ten Thousand. ) The first #200 notes are normally destroyed on a block run. Or star note run. The serial #00000002 (non star) is normally used as a test sheet, (After series 1981). The BEP will stop the press and inspect the sheet. Proper alignment, ink, plates if there all a go to begin the printing process. At serial #20000 the press is stopped again. Serial's ending with five or more zero's are also test sheets. 98 percent of the time they are replaced with star notes. The First District printed of each block ending with an (A) Suffix Serial #1 note (non star) is now stored at the BEP since the 2003A Series. With normal printing block runs exceeding 96000000 Million. Finding a serial number under 10000 is very tuff to come by, let alone Gem Uncirculated.

NUMBERS/SEMI SOLID SERIAL NUMBERS
Would you call this the Perfect RADAR? Unlikely, but twenty years ago that's what they were called. The serial number ended both ways. Today there call SOLID'S. A Solid serial number must consist of EIGHT digit's being the same. With 1's , 7's, 8's, 9's , being the most popular. Prices can jump all over. Depending on Denomination, Series. $2.00-$50.00-$100.00 are always in demand. There tuff to come by. Solid 9's on any denomination of FRN'S is downright RARE. $25,000.00 is the going rate on an FRN. Semi Solid's are mainly used as either a low serial or if your trying to but a progressive set together 00000333-00003333-00033333.
FLASHBACK: In 1998 Gem Uncirculated Modern Solid Serial Numbers were selling for $800.00.
|Original, Near GEM. The best solid serial number you could want. First solid serial number known on Small Size FRN Us Currency. Unreal......By far.|

Series Two dollar Solid 2's.... A note that once appeared in the John
Whitney sale in 2004 and then onto the Mel Wilmore Collection. A unique
solid 2's. A Bicentinel $2.00 Frn. On record there are about #7 Solid
1's on 1976 to 2013 series. Mike Abramsom currency is currently selling
a just recently printed 2013 Series solid 1's for $6000.00. There are
three solid 9's that have came out as Bep Products. Three solid 8's as
well. Those notes were special printed issue's by the BEP. This
note has been the only solid 2's to come out to date for general
circulation. $2.00 Frn's rarely get high production run's such as
77777777. 99999999. They do not print them as high as often. I
believe the reason why we did not see any other solid 's such as more
solid 2's is because the BEP would pull this serial ending #2 sheet as
a test sheet. This note I believe should of been pulled.|
The denomination matches the serial number on this early 76 series note . If you were looking for a standout solid on a $2.00 Frn this one would be it. I cannot compare any other solid $2.00 on a frn that would be more desirable OR Per say RARER for a 1976 Series $2.00!
mind blowing solid serial number silver certificate star note...
not for the faint of heart. Only three solid serial number stars
(# 22222222, 66666666 - this note, and 77777777) are known on silvers,
and this is the finest of them by far. The # 22222222 is rumored
to exist in fact, but hasn't been in the public eye for many years, if
ever. And the # 77777777 is a VF-20 at best.
Big difference between "TRUE LADDERS" and regular ladders. True ladders must end with a 1 or 8. Forward or backwards. 12345678 or 87654321. Depending on series and denomination $2.00-$50.00-$100.00 can be worth a lot more than $1.00-$5.00-$10.00-$20.00's. Regular ladder serial numbers are 23456789-12345670-07654321. Rare ladders they no longer print this high 98765432 can be worth double the price of a normal ladder. Ladder serial numbers have been saved for over 125 years. William Donlon used a 1928 $2.00 A00000123A for years on his catalogs. Albert A Grinnell carried the two lowest non star serial 123's on 1928 $10.00 and $20.00 Dollar Gold Certificates.

Specimen Notes feature ladder serial numbers. They also feature serial 0's. Specimen notes are used overseas for country's to view our currency before it's distributed. Every time there is a signature change, design change on a note, sheets are made up and shipped out overseas. Stamped the word specimen in red on the note. Many of these notes make there way back to the states. The LEGAL specimens are printed on both sides. (Must be less than 1996 series). ILLEGAL specimens are printed on (One Side Only) Blank on one side, many carry the words "specimen non negotiable" on one side. The bep believes these notes that are in collectors hands are STOLEN. The bep believes that these notes did not carry a (RELEASE DATE). Therefore they are there property and want them back. Usarare Suspects there are #200 or more within the collecting fraternity. Today these notes are sold privately.

Four digit, three digit, most all of all Two digit Repeaters. The more serial numbers within the serial number that do not match are far less common. Example a four digit serial number 19421942 and three digit 19941994 are very common, worth a few dollars over face value. Unless it's an early series, $2.00 or a Star. Two digit repeaters are an exception, they are the ones worthy unless it's a rare series, star, $2.00-$50.00-$100.00 it could be worth $100's of dollars. These notes are widley used in repeater sets. Starting with 01010101 working there way to 98989898.

The term "RADAR" says it all. A serial number that reads the same forward and backwards. While four digit radars and three digit radars are far less common and found many times in change today on modern day money. Early series, star, or $2.00-$50.00-$100.00 still can be worth a premium today on three and four digit radars. The best and most kept radars are *GEM UNCIRCULATED* and are two digit serial numbers. Example 000011000 which would be the first radar printed on a block run. Zero and the digit are the most popular today. Radars have been, and always have been the key to collecting "FANCY SERIAL NUMBERS" 9 times out of 10 your first purchase while collecting fancy serial numbers "RADAR".
