These two-dollar bills could be worth up to $20,000: How can I determine if I possess one?

Examining the money in your wallet carefully may be worthwhile. Two-dollar bills have a maximum value of $20,000. Here's how to ascertain whether you possess one. 

Some coins and bills in circulation are valuable to collectors for thousands of dollars, but the majority are only worth their face value. 

This is the case with some $2 bills, which have qualities that make them potentially worth up to $20,000. Find out how to identify the presence of one. 

Potential value of these $2 bills is $20,000: How can I tell if I've got one? 

Some uncirculated $2 bills can be worth a small fortune, according to MarketWatch. The serial numbers, the date the bills were printed, and their condition all affect their value in thousands of dollars. 

One of the primary things that can make a bill more expensive is the serial number, which is printed on the left and right sides of the front of the bill and is typically accompanied by a letter. 

“A serial number ‘1′ for a 1976 $2 bill would be worth $20,000 or more,” Dustin Johnston, vice president of Heritage Auctions, told Marketwatch.  

Another important factor to consider is the condition of the bill. Trying to sell a crumpled bill to a collector is not the same as trying to sell one that is well cared for or even classified as a collector's item and encapsulated for conservation.
