Anyone Collect Modern Star Notes just for fun?

Just wondering if there are any other collectors out there that when I get a star note in change I have to keep it and add it to the collection?

Maybe I am the only one haha

    :# Agreed.. youthful ignorance. It was pretty crumpled when I found it, and I rinsed with with dish soap/water and put it in a book for a few years. Hadn't even heard of PPQ/EPQ back then. Also a lesson I've subsequently learned...

    Ok, finding that solid 3 in circulation is awesome!

    I keep a few stars from each district if I get them, but I don't save everything. I have a few things I collect from circulation $1 notes: First a set by district, then a set by the serial number suffix, then each series year, then a set of blocks that are chemical element symbols (i.e. block FE for iron), then a few stars by district. I don't find much to add anymore though. It is about $100 in total and in a real emergency I could spend them, mostly at my cost.

    I definitely save all the solid serial numbers I come across though. Zero so far :)

    Fun here too. I've been pulling stars for years. Got a few solid stars, consecutive stars, about 3 dozen 2013-B's, and in the course of that itch, lots of trinaries, binaries, radars. It's all good. Peace Roy

    Yep. In change at a McDonald's, of all places. That was almost 20 years ago now -- it's a Series 2001-- and it's what really reinforced looking at every note for me. At the time, I had no idea exactly how hard they were to find or how valuable they are. I'm mainly a coin guy, and this far beats any of the Coinstar silver scores I've had over the years.

    Love the 3 $1 note!!!! Im a big fan of 3's

    Are you planning to sell/trade the note?

    Please let me know!

    At one time I did collect them. Took the group to a show and no takers. So unless they are really interesting they go back into circulation.
