$1 1928 LT with A00009xxxA low serial number

So I found a $1 1928 red seal with a low four digit serial number starting with 9. A00009xxxA. I don't remember the exact number but the note is in rough shape. I'd call it a VG 8 maybe. I can get the note for $60 and am wondering if there would be any demand for that? Could I sell it for $100+ or not?

    I'm going to try and get the note this Friday and hopefully it hasn't sold. If I get it I'll post a picture.

  • A circulated low serial $1 LT is surprisingly scarce. Most low serials were saved in AU or better, but those are 0005000 and under.

    Still, I think $100 would be the upper end of what I might spend on a high 4 digit LT, when so many are available in high grades. And thats barring any other issues like stains or tears that are common at that grade.

    There are those who will pursue 5000 to 9999, but I am not one of them.

    Here's another one I found in 2011 in a coin shop junk box while out picking with a friend. Paid only $25. I believe it then appeared in bank note reporter issue shortly after.

    With so many of the <5000 serial numbers in high grade, I am beginning to wonder if those notes ever circulated, or were just snapped up as conversation / novelty pieces.

    The 5001> notes went to Puerto Rico and were very heavily circulated, but finding lower numbered notes is still fairly tough.

    Obviously we now know that others from this range have been discovered as well but at the time we weren't sure.

    The article Tookybandit mentioned in SPMC is the research into the serial numbers 5000 to 9999 that Logan Talks submitted. Logan, is of course, SerialNumberGuy on this forum. That is probably the primary reason Larry510 sold the note to him. Sorry Max.

  • $1 1928 LT notes with serial numbers in the A00005001A to A00009999A serial number range are very rare with just 16 known, all of which are in circulated condition. Most of these notes are in about VG or so condition with the highest grade being note A00009913A which is XF. These were released in Puerto Rico with all the rest of the notes above A00005000A. The 16 known notes are distributed as follows: 5001 - 5999 2 notes, 6000 - 6999 5 notes, 7000 - 7999 3 notes, 8000 - 8999 3 notes, and 9000 - 9999 3 notes.

    While notes with serials under 5000 are frequently found they most always are in the A00000XXXA, A00001XXXA, and A00004XXXA serial range. Notes in the A00002XXXA range are very scarce to rare and are seldom seen. Notes in the A00003XXXA range are very rare with only 2 notes known making them perhaps the rarest serial number range of this series.

    Yes great find from the tough low serial number second brick that eluded most of us until the 1990's!

  • I notice all of these low serial numbers are old bills. I have a 2001 $1 bill that has the serial number 403. Does it have any value other than $1?
  • MaxcrushaMaxcrusha Posts: 8,388
    if its circulated its worth $3-4

    if Unc then $10-15

    its an Ebay item

    If it was number 347 I would have given you $20 for it. A lot of us collector's collect certain numbers and try to put together sets of them. I don't think anyone here collects 403.
