Hello everyone!

My wife spotted this bill today. It is a UNC 2002 Journey $5 Jenkins - Dodge # HNZ 5675765. My Question is, is this a normal radar note? I know if the middle 5 was an 8 it would be worth a fair bit, but would this have a little higher premium due to the numbers ascending & descending.

Thanks for any information on this.

Rodney.

Hello Rod.  
You are correct about it being worth more if the centre number was an 8  - a type of ladder note.

There really is no general premium over regular radars for this note based on the outer 3 digits though.  At least at this time, the collecting community has not specifically highlighted notes with a pattern such as this.

Still a nice find nevertheless.  Only one per 1000 notes is a radar.

Good luck in your searching.
Hudson :)

Correction: There are 10,000,000 notes per prefix, and counting all 1,2,3- and 4-digit radars, there are 9999 radars per prefix. This means approximately 1 note per 10,000 is a radar. Still though, there are TONS of radars out there.

Lol. Correction again:
Statistically, One per 1000 are radars (former post is edited). I missed the third zero.

Not one in 10,000 though  ;)

Duh, yes... 1 in 1,000. There are 10,000 per 10,000,000, so that's one in 1,000. All these zeros can be confusing.
