I've lately started looking at the serial numbers on paper currency. Checking for sequences that would appeal to collectors. No luck so far.

I've lately started looking at the serial numbers on paper currency. Checking for sequences that would appeal to collectors. No luck so far.
I once had a 1782 $20 Continental Currency note. It had printed on it Counterfeiters Death. On the back it had an oak leaf copied from a real oak leaf that counterfeiters supposedly could not counterfeit.

Look for a red star note. When a new bill gets damaged by the Mint, they destroy it and have to make a new one with the same serial number which has the red star.
