Mildly interesting Serial Numbers or no big whoop at all?

I don't really do currency or know it well.
Ended up with a fresh pack of $2's and decided to take a look through them...

    I like $2 notes. Everyone that gets a birthday card from me gets one.
    The OP’s notes have interesting serial numbers but nothing officially fancy, and the centering is so-so. If you like ‘em, keep ‘em.

    "No big whoop" but as Steve notes, "if you like em, keep em."

    When I started out squirrelling away a crumpled note here & there (with no catalogue/ no knowledge whether the note was a change-over, etc) I accumulated a small hoard until I started checking catalogues (asking others what they keep etc) & then I used many of my old notes to buy better (more collectible) ones. I used 40 year old circulated rags to buy 20 year old newer series that were tough & far more "collectible." I mean after chatting with some dealers/collectors, reading the catalogues, it doesn't take long to know what most collectors are after.

    At least your TWO's are in good shape (the #'s may be no big deal but they're pretty crisp). I also started keeping newer (closer to UNC) series notes (blindly) & most of these were also used to buy collectible notes (after I opened a Charlton at our local library). You could try the same strategy (get better informed) if you begin "to do currency" & learn to do it well (or if you like the hobby) exchange some of them for better ones.

    I like it and would think it worthy of grading and encapsulating.

    Then again, like error notes, I am not sure of the huge price valuations that rare numbers may have
