Both the 1977 series $1 bills and the 1977A series $1 bills are worth around $4.50 in uncirculated condition with an MS 63 grade.

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.

The 1977 series $1 star notes are worth around $3.50-5.50 in very fine condition. In uncirculated condition most notes with an MS 63 grade will sell for around $8-10. Star notes issued from the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston will be worth more money.

The 1977A series $1 star notes are worth around $3.50-4.50 in very fine condition. In uncirculated condition the price is around $8-10 for notes with an MS 63 grade. Star notes issued from the Federal Reserve Banks of Boston and Cleveland will be worth more money.
