I learned about these bills from an article in the U.S. Sun. Such as a 2017 series one-dollar bill selling for $15,000. But, hold on a minute. $15,000? What's so special about a one-dollar bill? According to Tiktok user blueridgesilverhound, the detail to look for is in the serial number.

Check your dollar bills for a palindrome serial number. This is when the digits read the same way forward as they do backward. For example, L777000777A. By locating one you very well may hit the jackpot. The condition is also important. If you're lucky enough to find one, you'll want to keep it as pristine as you possibly can.

According to blueridgesilverhound, also known as Shaun, even the dollar bill that sold at auction had a "strong center fold" and still sold for $15,000. Imagine what the price would be if there were no creases. What would you do if you had one? Would you sell it or hang onto it for collection purposes?
