    Barr notes found in circulation

    I know that people thought the Joseph Barr dollars would be valuable one day and hoarded then back in the late 60's. I was looking at the singles in my wallet yesterday and noticed I had these 3 Barr notes. So someone must have spent a relatives hoard. One is pretty crisp, the others aren't as pristine.

    Sadly - I'll probably keep them out of circulation myself since I collect stuff and it is only $3

    Thanks for looking,

    Joseph Barr was Treasury Secretary for only 21 days and his signature only appeared only on the $1 bill.

    My Barrs have been kept flat in a book, new, no folds since the day I got them. Now it's just a matter to find them to take pics for you non-believers.

    Good idea. Some desperate, out of work folks might spend their old money that they think is of little value.

    About 4 or 5 months ago, I found a Barr star note in circulation. Not in the best of shape, but still a pretty neat circulation find.
