QUESTION: I also have a 1995 $10 bill missing almost everything on the left and right front of the bill. No stamps, just the word ten on the right and barely anything on the left.

ANSWER: Hi David,

Thank you for the pictures.

Yes, your note does appear to be missing the third (green) print -- no serial numbers, no seal, etc.

These type of error notes are currently selling in the $100 to $200 range on eBay.

Let me know if you'd like me to give you the contact info for a couple currency dealers I know.

Thanks,

Dan

QUESTION: Thank you very much Dan. I appreciate your fast response and help. Quick question, I see tons of 1995 series $20 bills with this type of error on e-bay and via googling but I cannot come across any $10 bills with this error? Does this make it worth more or should I hold onto it for many years. Or decades.
Also any idea how many of these $10 bills with errors are in circulation? And please feel free to give my info to other dealers...

Thank you,

David

Answer
Hi David,

I think the difference may be in that they print more $20 bills.  This may make your $10 bill worth a little more, but I don't think the difference would be significant, and I don't think they will change a lot in value in a decade or two.

There's no way to know how many of these error notes are out there -- it's an error, not something that was planned for.

Lastly, here's the emails of two currency dealers I know, that you can send pictures of your note and see what they'll offer :

Harold Borden : hpborden-62@msn.com

Joe Peruski : jperuski@monroecurrency.com

Good luck!

Dan

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
