Making money...with money!
« on: January 20, 2018, 07:58:16 AM »
As a practicing numismatist I am going to show you how to make money with money. Anytime you get paper money check the serial number on it to see if it has a little tiny star behind it or in front of it, this is known as a star note, it is collectible, and it can sell for higher than the face value of the money:

It's kinda funny what makes money worth more.  I had a $1,000 dollar bill for years and when I was looking at it one day I checked it's serial number on some site and found out it was a replacement note.  Put it on Kijiji for $1,500 and sold it in minutes.  Same guy bought a bunch of fake money the Chinese used to train their bank tellers for the olympics that I had bought for humor but sold for good coin.  Makes me think there is toooooooooooo much money in the world. :wo:

 Always check your change for 1964 and older quarters nickels and dimes because they are 90% silver! I just found five Nickels today in the change on the dash of my truck  :yoyo:

I am not a collector but some years ago, when my kids were little, they asked about the different denominations of U.S. bills so I got these together to show them.  I never had, or even saw a $5000 or $10,000 bill.
