1973 $1 bills

Postby DCWilliams » Sun Oct 21, 2018 8:04 am

After some lengthy research to no avail, I'm hoping someone can comment on the approximate value for me.

I have some really nice crisp bills and some of them are consecutive but it's a bit of a mish mash with two different prefix numbers that I couldn't find any info on.

ECU634300 to 315 but missing 302 (darn it)
ECU634318 to 325
ECU634342 to 345
AMM9756540 to 550

I would appreciate any and all comments. Thank you.

You didn't say what the signatures were but it sounds like they are either
Lawson-Bouey or Crow -Bouey 3 letters.
As there were over 2 Billion of these printed in total, they are not worth
much over face value unless they are in CH UNC condition.
Being consecutive numbers does not really add much of a premium.

Thank you for your reply. Yes, Crow-Bouey signatures. My uncle who has passed purchased these from the bank as uncirculated and put them in plastic sleeves so I believe they are in perfect condition or close.

Unfortunately the only Crow-Bowie prefix with any value is EXA.
Even though what you have are probably uncirculated, they are
still only worth about $2.00 ,$3.00 at the most. The problem is
trying to sell a large quantity. Who is there who will want to buy them.
