So a few years back I got a $10 bill in change, and it was really a crisp older style bill (1969 A). I just found it in a stack of silver certificates today.

Anyway I was really just curious if older bills in good shape have any value over face?

In the book, usually. In the real world, it is harder to find modern US paper collectors. At least that is my experience.

Look on eBay to see what things like that are going for. I know that some of our currency depending on whose signature, etc. is on the bill can be worth quite a bit.

There were a lot of currency dealers at the FUN Show in January.

Most dealers probably would not pay a premium unless it is a star note.

In one price guide, a 1969-A $10.00 Federal Reserve Note is valued at $15.00 in XF. A star note of the same grade is valued at $20.00.

Its funny that you say that because I found a $10 FRN in good shape from 1963-A. If anyone has a price guide to chime in the value of this note would be helpful.

In the past I couldnt get anyone to buy old Frn's. Gold, Silver, USA, and star notes are the only things they like

I have a stack of one dollar bills with stars that I saved over time. Its been a long time, but is it that the star indicates it is a reprint of a damaged bill?

Yes, it means that a sheet of notes got messed up somehow and they re-printed it with the same serial numbers, but with a star added. Whether or not they are valuable depends on the year, series, and Fed district - like how coins depend on year, variety, and mintmark. Most coin dealers sell a paper money price guide - you can buy the monthly magazine version instead of a book and you'll only be out $4-5 and you'll probably have some fun.

I didn't want to start a new topic but my friend got a series 1934 $10 bill in change the other day and I bought it off of him for $13, did I get a good deal or is it just worth face? I couldn't find a good answer on the internet.

Depends entirely on condition the same as coins.

I find old bills all the time but sadly it is hard to find collectors. I have been keeping mine in a binder because I love the look of old paper money, maybe someday it will be more collectable.

I believe the star or replacement notes get printed first,then if there is a bad note a star goes in its place.Most stars are in large runs,its the stars from small runs,less than a million,sometimes only 320,000 or less that have any value to collectors.Unless its a unique serial or a very low number there usually is not a big premium attached.I have just recently started looking for stars and there is alot to learn.But I figured since I've been turning over some volume in my penny searches it might be worthwhile to be observent to the paper.Here are a few links I use.
