Pretty excited finding this in my change today. I've probably looked at a thousand bills a week for the last year at work and never found one. I get this one handed to me ;D:

ELN 972-990 Is a confirmed insert range, so this may or may not be an insert error, no way of knowing for sure

**as of this link**

If it was, how much would it increase the value?

value is always in the eye of the buyer, as far as I can tell there is no book value for such a note, but I don't think you'll find a buyer who won't admit that the 50/50 chance of this being an insert note error, has to raise the value to some degree.

Thanks! I have a buyer who has yet to complete the transaction (he's waiting for funds from a sale he made). His offer was $500 for this bill. In the ballpark?
