    Got it as change last night when I stopped off coming home from work.

    Says "Series 1950 B" on the lower right below Abe's mug.

    Is it worth anything as a collector's item?

    no. but i'll trade you a new fiver for it.
  4. It depends on the condition of the bill, but since it's been circulated, around $5-$8.


    Most coins and bills that are worth a lot more than their face value are either A) uncirculated or B) no longer produced (bills larger than $100, for example).

    I love the people collecting the state quarters like they're going to be some treasure someday. They made BILLIONS of every kind, with the specific intent of having people collect them. Know what your collection of all 50 quarters is going to be worth when you die? $12.50
