Have A $1 Bill? It Could Be Worth Thousands (Photos)


People everywhere are digging through their wallets to find a dollar bill with a rare serial number in the hopes it’s rare enough to cash in for thousands.

CoolSerialNumbers.com is hoping people will start to pay attention to the numbers printed on their bills, and as an incentive for taking a closer look, the website is offering people who have bills with rare serial numbers the chance to cash them in for sometimes thousands of dollars.

Not every bill will get you thousands of dollars, only rare bills with distinctive serial numbers that meet specific qualifications, and if those are found, they can get people lots of extra cash. ​
