My $2 strap from last week:

Got a strap of $2 yesterday from the bank. Half the strap was from the 1976 series and the majority of the 1976 series was from the California district. They are mostly crisp with no folds/holes.
Four of the notes were star notes!!!

    I think that members here are becoming accustomed to your finds and it will take even better ones to excite them. Four high grade 1976 stars is a pretty nice find but no red seals or large size type notes yet? An Educational would really be impressive. Congratulations, again.

    Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that the series 1976 $2 FRNs are printed on paper that’s a wee bit grayish compared to more modern $2s ?

    i agree with Steve. the '76 notes does look slightly grayish (darker) than the modern ones.

    Thanks! I hope to find those some day but I've been slowing down on my searches bc my office moved uptown in NYC. Now I have scope out the banks here and see where they located. I also need to mingle with the tellers lol.
