What’s Your Fancy?

Why fancy serial numbers of course! Today’s collectors are enjoying a newfound love of fancy serial numbers. There are a host of different serial numbers to collect; Radars, Ladders, Super Repeaters, Binaries, Solids, Birthday Notes, Near-Solids, Low Serial Numbers and Serial Number 1’s.  I am sure I am missing a few.

With so many ways and varying types to collect today, modern Federal Reserve Notes provide a new generation of collectors with opportunities to accumulate collectible notes that may increase in value. And the best part – fancy serial numbers can be found in circulation with a little searching and lots of luck.

Here is a breakdown of the various fancy/special number categories:

A friend and colleague, Mike Abramson, who is an expert in this popular paper money collecting segment has authored a new book entitled Special Serial Numbered Banknotes. His 270-page guidebook encompasses both Large and Small Size paper money and contains 500+ color photos of the rarest notes as well as current valuations of the most highly collected varieties.

Fancy serial numbers have come of age as more collectors embrace the joy of finding a neat serial numbered note in circulation. Imagine if that note turns out to be worth hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars. Fancy that!
