Billions of dollars worth of U.S. currency and printed and engraved every year. In line with this, in a few cases, something malfunctioned and there’s a misprinting. This occurred in July 2016 when the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing dispatched a request to its Forth Worth building to print a batch of dollar bills. Surprisingly, the same request had been sent to its Washington DC facility on November 2104.
As a consequence, over 6.4 million dollars out there with duplicated serial numbers can be found all over the world. Since these dollars are the result of a rate mistake, they’re worth far more than face value.
Here’s what to look for in these bills :
- The Series date placed on the right of the photograph of George Washington reads “Series 2013”
- The bill has a “B” Federal Reserve Seal above the serial number which is located also to the right of the picture of Washington
- The serial number finishes off with a star (*) and falls between B00000001*-B00250000* or B03200001*-B09600000*
If you happen to have one of these unique dollar bills, you’re only midway to your victory. According to Wealthy Nickel, you will find first the other matching misprinted dollar bills that can be found somewhere out there in the world for you to have $20,000 and $150,000, depending on the situation of the bills and the serial number.
