Sequentially numbered. 19 in all.
To grade individually or all in a pack ?
I wouldn’t grade them, individually or as a pack.
Yes as a holiday gift usually also included a cardboard cover/back
Yes. I bought a pack of 100 in the late 1970's for $1.25 each.
Thanks. I hadn't seen them until now.
I’ve got 30 modern $2 notes in a gummed pack. I give them as gifts.
first i seen of it. interesting
That's known as a Texas Scratch Pad.
The Happy State Bank in Happy, Texas makes them up from gummed packets of crisp sequential $1 bills and offers them for a nominal charge to their customers. They make great stocking stuffers and birthday gifts. I think I have a similar one that dates back to the '60s that's made with silver certificates.

Do they not make/offer them anymore?
When I was in college I made my own “pads”
Put em in a leather checkbook cover
It was priceless when I ripped on off in a bar to buy a beer..
It implies to the receiver, "Yeah, I made 'em myself." or at least puts the question in his/her mind.
I have some 1957 $1 SCs that have gummed top edges, obviiously from such a pack.
Couldn't you get some tool dip or even "peel Coat" rubberized spry paint to make your own?
Just get a solid pack and coat a layer on the top edge
It’s even more fun to take an uncut sheet and cut your own in front of someone.
IIRC, some dealer made a perforated edge book from some of these and passed them off in Vegas. Seems like there was a little chat with the SS in a small room.
