    BANK STRAP HUNTING - findings, new to forum 4/7/19

    To all you currency hunters, post if you like (similar to the CRH coin forum) of any findings you many have found in the wild (banks, retail change, etc.) of unique S/N, misprints, Star * notes, etc. Details of the note may help matching a note(s) from different parts of the country since serial numbers are trackable & unique of their own.
    Details of: denom, year, S/N, : would be a good start of info.
    For Star * Notes production data, go on-line to: star note lookup.com

    Star notes found 4/6/19 at a McD, and from 3-straps from a bank:
    $1, 2013, s/n E01501178*, run size 3.2mil, ttl run 6.650mil, run#1, @DC, Mar 2016
    $1, 2001, s/n C03286157*, run size 3.2mil, ttl run 6.4mil, run#2, @DC, May 2003
    $1, 2013, s/n L09989582*, run size 3.2mil, ttl run 12.880mil, run#4, @FW, Apr 2016
    $1, 2013, s/n L10879047*, run size 3.2mil, ttl run 12.880mil, run#4, @FW, Apr 2016
    Already strange is that the last two notes L had come from the same run size. This could now be interesting to see if any of you other strap hunters find similar *notes from the same run etc., and what would really be a find would be a S/N next to a note already posted (a before or after #). I got this s/n idea when I was trying to find & match a s/n of the $2bills I had collected. Over the course of 2-years, I had managed to match 4 bills to some that I already had on file. Now to duplicate this hunt throughout the country.

    i'll contribute to the post. Below are a sequential group of $1 star notes that I came across bank strapping a couple of years ago. Also a recent repeater $20 find:

    I saw on a U-tube video of a guy who had got a full strap NEW $2 *star notes. Now what are the chances of getting something like that. Also, same video, that star note straps are also marked with wide white HASH lines on the bank strap for quick & easy detection., didn't know that.

    BC: I see nothing special about it, unless I'm missing something. Keep it only if you can afford to sock away $40.

    Picked up a very badly worn & used $1 1935F Silver Cert from a teller today. Not even worthy to take a pic of it, it's been around the world and then some.

    I thought the numbers were interesting.
    What kind of examples are you looking for ?

    Star notes found at branch bank, (4) 2013 from 3-straps, all with a run size of 3.2 mil. They say if you find one with a print run of 640,000 or less, hang on as a rarity. I'll just file these away.

    How can you tell the total in the print run?

    Go online, into: MyCurrencyCollection
    Once on there, follow prompts, "Star Note Lookup"
    Just float around that site, you'll find a lot of good info etc.

    Exchanged the four above straps for four others. This time found 4-star notes, one in each strap, run sizes @ 3.2mil, BUT out of the 4-different straps, two of the stars were adjoining serial numbers. How ironic can that be, from different banks yet.

    Found 2 more star notes, but this time at a McDonalds, both a 2013 series, with run sizes of 3.2mil. I've already noticed that hunting bank straps for stars & unique serial numbers ARE more pocket outlay expense than hunting dimes if I plan on keeping those particular notes. Time to give it more consideration.

    BANK STRAP HUNTING - findings, new to forum 4/7/19

    Picked up two straps of $1 notes from my local branch. Found 3-star notes all with run sizes of 3.2 mil, plus two other notes as a "flush serial numbers = 8 different serial numbers" also called a "broken ladder" with 3-thru-0, and 1-8, as 69780543 & 37462185., a good poker hand.

    But, from you currency experts, is "0" zero considered as low or high "as ten"? If it's low, then I only have one broken ladder 1-8.
