Star notes from the Cleveland, Kansas City, Dallas and San Francisco districts are most desirable. They can value $800+ in uncirculated condition.
Light Green Seal vs Dark Green Seal
Some notes have a light, limey green seal. Others have a dark forest green seal. Dark green seal notes are more common than light green seals.
Check for Mule Notes
Mule notes were printed with micro size numbers on the front and macro numbers on the back. The reverse can also be true. Only 1934 $100 Dark Green Seal notes can have mule plates.
The BEP’s transition from micro to macro sized numbers began in 1938 and concluded in 1953. During this time, multiple series, denominations and types had mule plate configurations. The government preferred to reuse older plates rather than destroying them.*
Ultimately, some mule notes became instant rarities because the BEP printed so few. Mule star notes are even rarer. I can help you identify a mule note. Submit photos of the front and back of your note.
