Coin and Paper Money Collecting/$2.00 Bills

wouldn't a stack of 1000 2$ bills be worth 2000 at the bank?

I am hoping that the first answerer just made a mathematical mistake, because a block of 1000 2 dollar bills is worth at MINIMUM $2000.  And you may get more if you can find a buyer that wants your whole block.

In response to "At a minimum, I would guess that the block should bring between $1500 and $2000 to an interested collector." - The face value of 1000 $2 bills is $2000. The block should bring in at least $2000 guaranteed by the US government.

He said that he has 1000 bills at a $2 denomination. Why then would it be worth $1500 to $2000 to a collector? He has $2000 and going to sell it for $1500?

Not sure who is responding to the question above.  The answer says 1,000 $2 bills would only be worth between $1,500 and $2,000.  I will gladly pay $1,500 for $2,000 cash.

The poster said they had a block of 1,000 $2 bills. So that would make the block worth at LEAST $2000 just on face value. And you say it's would bring between $1500 and $2000? Am I missing something?
