In poor condition these bills are only worth their face value of $10. In fair condition they will be worth a few dollars over face value and $15 at the most. The price in uncirculated condition can reach $35.

Star Notes

Star notes are replacement bills that the United States Federal Reserve printed. These star notes are more rare and thus more valuable. You can tell if you have a star note by looking to see if there is a star symbol at the end of the serial number.

In circulated condition the value for a 1963 $10 star note is around $35. The value is much higher for bills in uncirculated condition.

History of the 10 Dollar Bill

Every $10 bill features Alexander Hamilton on the front. Hamilton was never president but he did serve as the nation's first Secretary of the Treasury. Today every $10 bill is a Federal Reserve note, but in the past there were also legal tender notes, silver certificates and gold certificates. In addition, there were different sized bills. Every bill printed before 1928 was a large-size bill. The current small size bills were first issued for the 1928 series.

As far as value goes, generally the older bills will be more valuable- especially the older large-size notes. However the small-size notes can also be valuable if they are of a rare variety.


As mentioned, this isn't a very valuable bill. Other ten dollar bills are more valuable, including the prior 1934 ten dollar bill. But if you have a star note then your bill can be worth much more.
