Best Answer

In many cases a "star note" is slightly more valuable than a standard one. The star by the serial number means that the note is a replacement for one damaged before it was released to the Federal Reserve system. These notes are called "star notes." While they're obviously less common than notes without a star, they're actually not unusual; the only reason they're not often found in circulation is that curious individuals and collectors tend to take them out of circulation as soon as they are discovered. Only 11% of any series of notes have a star. The value of the note will be based on the series and its condition.
