    The strap on the left is indicating a broken ladder for the SN. Great find!

    I love the two-dollar notes. Classic design, usually available in crisp uncirculated condition with consecutive numbers straight from the bank. I hand them out to kids at Christmas or Halloween. Buy a few small items here and there with them. Most people love seeing them. Every once in awhile a cashier complains "what am I supposed to do with this?" But mostly they go down a treat.

    How about you @luckyrollers ? Any plans? Do you hoard them? Spend them? Sell them?

    I usually keep the one I want and return the rest to the bank.
    Sometimes i would spend them and the cashiers usually do a double take on the two dollar notes.

    Yeah it is a good find.
    I don't usually keep "broken ladders" but this one is the best one I ever got.

    Usually the broken ladders are all scattered but this one has only TWO numbers that IF they were the swap places, it would be a great ladder note,......

    on to the search!!! :smiley:

    “Broken Ladder” is a description primarily used on eBay and paper money forums for serial numbers that otherwise would have no collector value. They fit the same narrative as a “Partial Ladder”.

    Getting close Vince. Keep at it (you're bound to score something eventually). Good luck!

    Me bad, the strap on the right has the broken ladder indicated. The broken ladder might bring a small premium.
