Welcome to T-Net, Phull. A dealer might give you about $8 to $12, if anything at all. It is not rare. Good luck.

I was a coin dealer with my own store for 20 years. Its worth $5.00 that's it. If you find someone who will pay any more... take it...

If it was stone mint might be worth a few $$ over face, with the wear and folds, face value and not likely to increase in value for centuries to come.

Your bill was issued in Atlanta; over 86 million were printed.
Any premium you receive might come from a game of Liar's Poker, as mentioned above.
Don....

It makes me wonder how many of those 86 million still survive?

I got a 1950 $20 bill (Same Condition) from a coin Store back in Change from a $100 bill.
Thought It was cool , went back & fourth on to keep it or not.

Spent it at Mickey Dee's that night & the people there did not want to take it & not cause of the 1950 but because of the Small Face. LOL There was talk of Calling the Manager before they finally took it. 2 of the workers were def, over 30 years old.

Welcome to Tnet, my Friend!

You can either go through the hassle of eBay and hope someone bids,
OR you can send me a PM if you still have it. I'll give a little over face and save you the eBay fees.


Best Wishes,

Scott
