I know this forum is for coins but I thought one of you might be able to help me. I found this old $10 bill the other day in some change I got back from the store and was wondering if it might be worth any thing more than ten dollars. I would really appreciate any help .

No dealer would give you more then $10 for it, but I think it's a neat thing to hold on to.

You can build a fine Silver Certificate collection just from searching bills in circulation at face value... it's a good way to save some dough too!

Welcome to the message boards. You can try your question in the currency forum and see if you get a different answer over there.

It's not quite a silver certificate, is it? More like a Federal Reserve Note.
"Redeemable in lawful money", whatever that is supposed to be.

Probably little if any premium but I'd hold onto it.

P.S. there is a currency forum here. On the main forums page, scroll to the bottom and you should find it.

Welcome to the boards.

Stick around a bit and you'll find plenty of cool things that you can look for in change.

Oops I didn't scroll down far enough to see the whole note

Someone dealing with hard times in this economy must have pulled this from a drawer, etc.

It's tough to even find 1950's series bills in circulation today, let alone a 1934... neat-o find!

I'm still hopeful to find a Brasher Doubloon in a roll of Sacajawea's... no luck yet!

Buys a lot less than it did in 1934, but its still worth $10.

I have a few of these 1934 $10 notes lying around; don't remember where I got them from. I'm pretty sure you can get around $12.50 ~ $15.00 apiece for them though.

I have the same one, also got it in change and in about the same condition. It has a "book value" of ~30$ in that condition, which means you can probabl get 9$ for it. As someone else said, its just cool to keep.

Get rid of it.. The bill you have has possible swine flu juice on it... Can you imagine where that note has been.

My Mother (God rest her soul) got this one in change a few years ago also. I switched it out then for the current 10 spot. They have a tendancy to stick out like a sore thumb.

The 8th edition of Schwartz-Lindquist has both notes listed as $11 in VF. Keep them if you like them, don't feel bad if you spend them though.
