From Pocket Change to Fortune: How Your $2 Bill Could Fetch $4,500!
I remember as a kid getting a $2 bill from my Uncle Benny and feeling like I had a million dollars in my hand.
While the bill is only worth $2 some bills could be worth up to $4,500
Who's On The $2 Bill?
America's 3rd President is featured on the front of the $2 bill. Since 1976 on the backside is a picture of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
Why Are These $2 Bills Worth So Much?
If you have a $2 bill, it might be worth more than its face value on the collectibles market. According to the U.S. Currency Auctions (USCA) website, certain $2 bills can fetch $4,500 and up on the collectibles market.
The majority of the truly priceless ones were published in the 19th century. However, if you have the appropriate bill, even those printed within the previous 30 years might be worth hundreds of dollars.
Key Things To Look For When Determining The Value of a $2 Bill
Red Seal: For those wanting to cash in big on their $2, look for a red seal. If it was printed in 1890 and uncirculated, it’s worth $4,500.
Other $2 bills with the red seal range from being worth $300 to $2,500.
Some bills with brown or blue seals are also worth hundreds of dollars.
Year of Printing: The value of collectible $2 bills varies by series year, distributor type, seal color, and circulation status. An original print of the $2 bill from 1862 can range in value from $500 at its lowest for a circulated note, to more than $2,800 if uncirculated.
The highest value for a $2 note was found on 1890 Treasury Note versions, with the circulated version worth between $550 and $2,500, or at least $4,500 if uncirculated.
For more recently printed $2 bills, look for ones printed in 1995 or 2003. Those are worth $500-700.
Condition: The condition of the bill is also important. Uncirculated notes from 1890 have the highest value, which is $4,500 or more, however, the majority of those bills have values between $550 and $2,500.
A genuine, uncirculated $2 bill from 1862 can be worth somewhere between $500 and over $2,800. For an 1869 note, you might earn $3,800 or even more.
