Value of a $2 FRN ?

I've managed to get a hold of a 1976 series FRN $2 note (I'm not sure if
there are any other years). I don't think $2 notes circulate much in the
US so is this just a face value curiosity ?

Sorry to tell you, but it is worth 2 bucks.
They don't circulate much.  Cashiers don't like them (no drawer),
and because they are perceived as scarce, people hold on to them.

Yes, unless there's a special case-- printing error, special serial number.

There is a newer series of $2 FRN's, dated 1995.

Whenever I hand a $2 bill to a cashier their drawer remains attached to
their cash register. How many times have you had their drawer disappear?

Waitresses *LOVE* them. Many (not all) cashiers dig them as well. They put
them in the extra slot next to the $20s or $50s and hand them out in change
when the change is more than $1 and less than $5.

So, ask for them at your bank and if they say they don't have any, talk to
the manager and tell them to order them (just like Golden Dollars, except
those are already far more popular than $2s and many banks are already
carrying them as "regular" money).

Rob,
    I have a few perfectly crisp $2 1976 that I put on eBay from time to
time. I usually get $4-$6 for them. Circulated - I doubt it would be worth
the trouble.

So do ***s.  Twice as much as a $1 bill, in fact!
