What's a star note ?
A STAR note is a United States bank note that has an asterisk (*), or star, after the serial number.
The Bureau of Engraving and Printing inspects currency for printing errors prior to releasing notes into general circulation. When misprinted notes are found, the notes (error notes) are replaced with STAR notes because no two bills within a certain series can be produced with the same serial number.
They are used to maintain a correct count of notes in a serial number run. By their nature, star notes are more scarce than notes with standard serial numbers and as such are widely collected by hobbyists. Some of the highest prices paid for modern (post-1928) U.S. banknotes have been for star notes.
What's a WEB note ?
What is a web note?
The BEP experimented with a continuous web fed paper press for a short period of time (instead of the standard 32 notes per sheet). Web notes are easily distinguished by the front and back plate numbers. On Web notes only, the front plate number appears as a number only (no letters), usually only one digit. On the Reverse, the plate number for web notes is in a different location than on standard notes and is usually a one digit number (sometimes two). Web notes were only produced for series 1988A, 1993 and 1995. Web notes quickly disappeared from circulation. They are considered experimental issue test notes, similar to the 1935 " R " and " S " $1.00 Silver Certificates were. These web notes are extremely difficult to locate and will only rise in value through the years !!! Want more info ??? Feel free to contact us....
