    1977 $20: Nine consecutive serial numbers

    I recently bought a bunch of crisp 1977 $20s at a bank that included several consecutive runs. The longest is nine. I keep getting conflicting information on the value of such notes and wonder what some of you think. Obviously, since they're consecutive, someone kept them safe a long time!

    You might be on to something there. I found a consecutive set of 4 1$ star notes and sold them on eBay for $15 I think so those should do well. If you’re not attached to them just throw them up on eBay auction for a little bit over face value and let the people decide how much they are worth. That’s probably how I would do it and then just my luck I would lose out on some money lol. Good luck!

    ATM's spit them out with consecutive numbers all the time, or at least they used to. I remember they were a PITA because they stuck together and it was easy to over pay for something and even the cashier would miss them being stuck

    Sorry, not rare. You can go to the bank and get as many as you want. Just ask for them. Now, if they had all the same numbers such as all 2's or 3's and so on...you would be sitting on a pot of gold!

    But you probably can't ask for 1977 Series.

    Someone will want them and will pay a little over what they are worth. Just depends on who sees them and has the extra cash to spend.

    I get runs of consecutive bills all the time and also dislike them for the same reason. I spend them ASAP in the self-checkout cash machines after making sure they are not stuck together. The machines don't give you a "look" when you pay for a small item with a crisp $100 bill - and they return worn change.
