My star note is older than the lookup allows?

What if my star note is older than the lookup allows?

Many of you have emailed me something along the lines of: “I tried to look up my 1963 $1 star note, but it isn’t an option for the Star Note Lookup. What’s the deal?”

The purpose of the star note lookup is to help collectors identify rare modern star notes. Many star notes found in circulation are not worth over face value and can be spent without regret. Some of them can be worth a considerable amount over face value. That depends on the size of the run and the total quantity printed. That’s what the Star Note Lookup can tell you.

Older star notes are most likely worth more than face value regardless of the quantity printed. If you want more information about older star notes, I recommend buying a reference book like the The Standard Guide To Small-Size US Paper Money 1928 To Date or some of these others.
