FAQs

Q What does the star in the serial number mean?
A Prior to 1908, every time a sheet of notes was destroyed a new sheet (4 notes) was printed with hand set serial numbers that matched the destroyed sheet. Starting in 1908 when a sheet of notes is found not perfect, the entire sheet is replaced with a sheet with serial numbers that start or end with a star. Thus, you can have a pack of 100 notes with 001 on top and 100 on the bottom.
 
Q What is a mule?
A A mule occurs when the front of the note is printed with a certain series plate and the back is printed with a different series plate: such as 1934 $10 Fed obverse with a 1934A $10 Fed reverse.
 
Q What is paper wave?
A Our currency is printed in a process where the paper is slightly moist in order to receive the best ink impression. The moistness when dried leaves a wave in the paper.
 
Q Where is our paper money printed?
A The big producer is the Bureau of Engraving & Printing in Washington D.C. and a second plant prints money in Fort Worth, Texas. Tours run quite frequently and are a lot of fun.
 
Q What should I collect?
A Whatever you want, but before you start spending big money take the time to buy the books that are written on your area of interest then make sure you read them.
 
Q I'm just starting to collect U.S. Paper Money, any special thoughts?
A I do not push any certain grade or type of notes, but I do say that whatever do, don't buy notes with problems. If you have to say "but" don't buy it.

A This is the association of collectors of paper money and six times a year they publish a wonderful magazine that teaches so much - well worth the dues. Send me your email with your address and I will send you an application.
