    A gentleman farmer named Floyd
    With some of his kin was annoyed
    The boys in their youth
    Did not know the truth
    And one of his tools was destroyed

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    720,000 were printed in 1950; minimal appreciation in extra fine condition during last nearly 70 years. I'd spend it at Walmart.

    I'm wondering if it's an error note..looks shifted to the right a bit. I'd take it somewhere to have it looked at, to see if it's an error and a genuine note, as someone above commented. If it's genuine and you can afford to keep it, it's a great score! Thanks for sharing!

    If the bank determines it is counterfeit I thought they are required to take it. ??

    Of course, you should keep it! You even know how much it will cost in 5 or 15 years.

    I was in a used bookstore yesterday and the fellow next to me opened a book and found a $100 bill in it. Presumably, it was used for a bookmark and forgotten. The honest fellow showed the shop owner and offered it to him. The shop owner told him "finders keepers". They discussed why the other party was entitled to it for a few fascinating minutes and finally the shop owner took it, and gave the finder $50.

    I know that's off-topic, but it was wonderful to witness.
