For the most part, the newer the bill, the more collectors will insist on higher grades. The lower grades have value, but you have to look harder for a buyer. Tape repairs pretty much make a bill a "filler", star note or not. They have some collector value, but most dealers probably have sufficient inventory and wouldn't offer you much.

As with coins, with paper condition is everything..everything. These were all pulled from circulation, so are worn and creased, greatly devaluing them...and it is all in your perspective...to KT bills from the 50s-60s-70s...they are not old!

Maybe keep them for sentimental reasons but they're not really worth anything above face value.

What kind of signal did those give off? Im having a hard time finding paper with my detector really cool bills, id hold onto them, regardless of value. Plus, they dont take up much room.

I keep only the bills with no creases and mint shape, otherwise most are common. I wont spend the common bills like 1920s $20 bills, but I sell them to friends for face value.
