Question on back plate numbers

I usually lurk on the coins forum but I was curious about some new 1 dollar bills I have. Sorry for the stupid question as I am sure it is an easy one for all of you, but is finding a new dollar bill with back plate # 1 anything special? I actually recall that there is a repeating sequence of plates 1, 2, and 3 as I flip through the stack.

I thought it was neat and I might keep a set but wanted to make sure they are not special before I spend the rest.

Thx!

    Not a large following, but some collectors do collect plate #1 notes.

    Adds a cool factor, but doesn't add a premium. Keep it for fun, and keep looking for cool notes!!

    Thx! As I expected, but wanted to confirm.

    About the best note I have ever found is a circulated $5 with a HUGE ink smear on the back. When I come across it I will post pics for opinions.

    I like them on 1963 $1 FRNs!

    It is possible to assemble a district set of $1 FRN 1963 face plate 1s. The NY note appears to be the toughest to locate.

    Yes, there is a Wow factor, guessing it is 10% premium to the right buyer?
