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.

Most 1974 series $1 star notes are worth around $3-7 in very fine condition. In uncirculated condition the price is around $10-15 for notes with an MS 63 grade. Star notes issued from the Federal Reserve Banks of Cleveland and Minneapolis will be worth more money.
