Ten Dollar Bill with a Star in the Serial Number – Values and Pricing
There are two ultra-rarities in the ten dollar star note series. The first is the 1933 $10 silver certificate star note. You basically have no chance to find one of these in the wild. However, the other rare $10 star note can be found if you have a good eye. 1934 $10 yellow seal North Africa star notes are very rare. Only a handful are known to exist. They can easily be confused with the much more common 1934A $10 North Africa star.
All 1934B $10 blue seal silver certificate star notes are rare. There is also a rare $10 silver certificate variety in the 1934D star series. You can contact us for help identifying if you have the rare 1934D $10 star variety.
1934A $10 North Africa stars are very popular. $10 brown seal Hawaii stars are more valuable than North Africa stars, but the Hawaii aren’t quite as heavily collected right now.
There are lots of 1929 Federal Reserve bank notes stars out there. Anything from 1929 that has a low two digit serial number will command a nice premium. Otherwise be on the lookout for rarer districts like Dallas and Boston.
A hidden star rarity for the ten dollar denomination is the 1928C green seal. Cleveland was the only district to issue 1934C stars. So if your 1928C $10 bill starts with the letter D and ends with a star symbol, then you have a valuable note.
Some other $10 bills from 1928 can be rare. However, the value of any green seal note from 1928 or 1934 is heavily dependent upon the serial number and condition. Most all $10 star bills from 1950 and newer will just be worth face value.
